The fused glass is housed in a wooden stand that was hand-crafted by the artist from a piece of poplar tree bark she had collected previously. Interestingly, the fused glass was not executed with the bark stand in mind.  Rather, the stand was carved by the artist after she had finished the glass part, and was intended to further enhance the “reality” of the scene (of a real place in Italy) depicted in the artwork. The multilayered clear glass over the scenery is a new direction in Miriam’s work.
