Capricious

Capricious…movement-driven glass sculpture in vaporous blue

I know I’ve shared this with you many times and it remains true.  My mood of the moment molds the initial layout and design of my pieces.  It reveals it.  Helps to clarify it.

This design erupted as movement driven. I saw lines in acceleration, switchback curves. Crescendo and return. I also wanted to push the technical norms. Deep excavation of the central core and tight overlaps.

Seems like a twisted oxymoron – attempting to capture this intensity of movement while casting it in an ethereal, almost vaporous blue glass.  But, here it is.


Creating CAPRICIOUS…design in wax, “final wax” ready for foundry, finished sculpture

Movement-driven glass sculpture begins to show in Pollitt's wax design.

Bulky and vague. But the design pushes forward.

Design emerges further.
