Lovely but glass top tables scare me. Had a glass top table collapse on me with thanksgiving dinner on it. Landed right on top of the poor dog. Needless to say it was an unforgettable turkey day.

I'm sure the dog will never forget...

For sure. It was a bit comical looking back on it. I was chasing him all over the yard trying to catch him so I could get the broken glass out of his LONG hair before he licked it out. Poor dog was terrified. I'll never forget either and avoid glass tables like the plague now.

I'm just beginning to actively "deal" with my glass breaking talent and try to gain some control over the energy that surrounds me.

Good luck on that and let me know how it goes. Murphy seems to mess in my life periodically and when that happens all bets are off. I have never had problems with breaking glass in the past but once was enough when it comes to tables.

I always learn something from your deviations... so this looks like a good opportunity - what is Greek Key?

This is a VERY loose variant of the Greek Key or meander,as it's known.
The formal Greek Key motif is more geometric,and in a repeating pattern ,as in a strip around the circumference of a pot (for instance).
I have morphed it's angularity into a spiral and taken it out of context in the sense that here it is NOT a repeating pattern.
It was probably a mistake to mention it at all ,so far afield did my evolution take it from it's original form.
Still ,I like to note origins of shapes and ideas sometimes to provide insight on my particular creative process. Not everyone cares,but to the uninitiated ,it can sometimes make my pieces easier to understand.
If you Google Greek Key and punch up images,you'll see the original design motif.

Oh! I know what you are talking about now that you have explained it. I should have googled it but was being lazy and wanted to understand your take on it. I think you should continue to mention your inspiration on your pieces. For me it gives the piece more meaning and I find it fascinating to learn what inspires artists to make what they make.
