Dichroic Luna Moth Iridescent Fused Glass Tile Plate

A fused glass luna moth just dripping in dichroic glass.  Eye spots adorn each wing as he floats aloft on a sheet of rainbow iridescent glass sky.

I love how the dichroic glass changes color as you change your perspective.  I tried to capture this by photographing the luna moth from about a 45 degree angle.  The metal oxides that coat the glass just shimmer and almost dance as the surface catches the light.

A luna moth lives such an abbreviated life, but this one survives.
