Photographer Joe St. Pierre and I were interested in creating some colorful still life images. I've always been intrigued by the ways that colors can evoke mood and emotion. I collect colored glass objects and love to see how a photographer captures the forms and transforms them with their lighting. I named the photos by the hero object that ultimately "sold" us on the scene we were creating; the finishing touch that made the composition feel whole. I’d love to be the size of an ant for a day and walk around these scenes.
