Bashert unfolds as “built-up” sculpture

Bashert unfolds as "built-up" sculpture

Harry Pollitt’s latest sculpture is aptly named, Bashert. Improbable events and unexpected results surround the story of this kiln cast glass sculpture. The best explanation is that it was “meant to be.” Come read why.

Capricious

Capricious

It’s an oxymoron – this movement-driven glass sculpture created in vaporous cobalt blue by Harry Pollitt. Pushing technical bounds with deep excavations and tight overlaps, Capricious stands 1′-7″ high with deep-colored edges. Come see it.

Pinnacle

Pinnacle

Lots of descriptors fit my newest cast glass sculpture…cantilevered, precarious, a challenge, jade green. What it cannot call itself is “meant to be.” But six re-builds later, I call it pretty cool. Engineering disguised as aesthetics. And not easy to capture, so I’ll post a few extra photos shortly. Let me know what you think.

Coriolis

Coriolis

In the emerging stages, my first cast glass wall sculpture was a whole new process for me. In wood, a wall sculpture is a familiar and enjoyable form. Yet, at first, it felt “weird” in wax. I had to become acclimated all over again to designing without the wood grain. There seemed now to be no point of beginning.

Enigma

Enigma

Some months back, I stumbled upon a long forgotten, unfinished wood sculpture. I had abandoned it because I had excavated it so much that I could not execute my intended design. The dangers of reduction art! Now, I’ve given it another try – this time converting the sculptural concept in wood to a glass sculpture.

Enigma| 1′-8″ h, 11″ w, 10″ d | Kiln cast crystal | Cobalt Blue | Inquire.

Sentinel

Sentinel

I’m continually inspired by re-thinking (and thus always eager to try variations of) my own work. My #27 kiln-cast piece is an open design glass sculpture influenced by previous pieces — and by #26, which had failed at the foundry. Come take a look at the final result as well as a few progress photos.

Sentinel | 2′-4″ h, 11″ diameter | Kiln cast crystal | Dark Orange Red | Inquire.

Fluid Dynamics

Fluid Dynamics

Fluid Dynamics: Over a year in the making and a real envelope-pusher for the foundry. Given degree of difficulty, this piece may reach parity with my more complex wood sculptures. What do you think?

Fluid Dynamics | 2′-0″ h, 12″ dia | Kiln cast crystal | Dark Orange Red | Inquire.

Escape Velocity

Escape Velocity

Escape Velocity : I say if I’m not a little bit scared, I’m not doing good work. Well, Escape Velocity had me scared. It wasn’t until I got the wax form down to 9 lbs that it started to “make it.” Somehow it’s the scary part that really drives me.

Escape Velocity: 1′-6″ h, 12″ dia | Kiln cast crystal | Pale Copper Blue | Inquire.

Ode to Morph

Ode to Morph

Ode to Morph: Inspired by my wood sculpture, Morph VII, and wanting to go larger, Ode to Morph emerged. Sculpting a curl over the center in wood had been one thing. But in glass was quite another.

Ode to Morph: 1′-8″ h, 1′-1″ w, 9″ deep | Kiln cast crystal | Jade green | Inquire.

Mariah

Mariah

Mariah: I thought it was time to actually try my hand at the evocative, sensual and organic Art Nouveau period. To see what would happen. Here is the result. I must admit, I didn’t expect this outcome!

Mariah: 1′-8″ h, 10″ dia | Kiln cast crystal | Hyacinth | Inquire.

Splash

Splash

Splash: My intention with this piece was to expose the inner core and draw the eye…from the outer structure…to the tight twists and turns…to the inner core…and swirl back out.

Splash : 14″ h, 9″ dia | Kiln cast crystal | Jade green | Inquire.

Red Shift

Red Shift

Red Shift: On previous works, I had been noticing hints of shapes and colors being projected onto one side of the piece by design structures on the other side of the piece. With Red Shift, I intentionally planned for that occurrence and chose a glass that does dramatic color shifts depending on the thickness.

Red Shift: 1′-3″ h, 8″ dia | Kiln cast crystal | Inquire.

Classic Moves

Classic Moves

Classic Moves: Complex curves, planes, lines all complementing and in opposition to each other. All are elements of architecture & engineering. And, so, the structure is the design and the art is the structure.

Classic Moves | 1′-6″ h, 10″ diameter | Kiln cast crystal | Jade | Inquire.

Awakening

Awakening

Awakening: I used two human-esque elements opposite to each other to create this figure stretching upward, greeting a red dawn.

Awakening | 1′-8″ h, 10″ diameter | Kiln cast crystal | Dark Orange Red | Inquire.

Aurora

Aurora

Aurora : Is cast in dichroic crystal, meaning it changes color from pink to lavender in different light sources.

Aurora | 1′-4″ h, 8″ diameter | Kiln cast dichroic crystal | Lilac | Inquire.
