Adagio

Adagio

Adagio: Is a symphonic movement played slowly. It is also a ballet movement that is about fluidity and grace.

Shape Shifter

Shape Shifter

Shape Shifter : In previous glass pieces, I utilized the basic form – inside outside curved lines and planes. But, here, for the first time, I incorporated diverging lines. Lines that heretofore I had only used in my wood wall sculptures.

Cascade

Cascade

Cascade: Remember Orangesicles from your childhood? I was trying to capture the feeling of orange ice warming in the Summer sun and slumping – or, well, cascading down.

Midnight Moves

Midnight Moves

Midnight Moves: The most difficult sculptural glass I’ve completed to date. And the most difficult to cast. And yet, the degree of difficulty plays an integral role in the moodiness and depth created by the dark orange red glass.

Midnight Moves | 1′-7″ h, 10″ diameter | Kiln cast crystal | Dark Orange Red | SOLD to Private Collector.

Blue Pyro

Blue Pyro

This is the first public appearance of my piece, Blue Pryo. Sold before leaving my studio. Come read the story of why I say this business of glass art design can be a precarious endeavor…and why I love it for that reason!

Limoncelli

Limoncelli

Limoncelli: This is the first time I used the color called Citrine (a color not likely found on my personal palette), but I am delighted with the outcome. It shimmers in the light and delivers one of the true rewards for working in glass – the added dynamic of color and luminosity.

Limoncelli | 10″ diameter | Kiln cast crystal | Citrine | SOLD by Thomas Riley Galleries.

T with ‘Tude

T with 'Tude

T with ‘Tude: I have done mostly vertical pieces in the past. A few pieces went horizontal like Morph II and Levitation. I am always searching for new expressions in my designs. So I thought about combining both vertical and horizontal for this piece…mostly horizontal to get the main element up off the surface.

Blue Tango

Blue Tango

SOLD. Blue Tango is my largest glass piece to date at 2′-2″ tall. During layout, I envisioned a schematic representation of dance… tall and slender with open dynamic upward movement. This spiral glass sculpture emerged.

Blue Shift

Blue Shift

For this piece, I called upon several elements that I had incorporated in earlier glass works – intersecting lines and curve-over edges. It’s not plagiarism if I steal from myself! But I also included a more open core, multiple penetrations and three tunnels to play with. I sculpted Blue Shift as a donation piece for an AACG Auction.

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.

Mythic Fire

Mythic Fire

At 1′-8″ tall and over 50 pounds, this was my largest (and, if I may say, one of the most dramatic) pieces to date.

Mythic Fire | 1′-8″ h, 10″ diameter | Kiln cast crystal | SOLD by Holsten Galleries.

Levitation

Levitation

When this sculpture was still in wax form and nearly finished, collectors stopped by the studio. They fell in love with the horizontal layout and wanted to add it (finished, of course) to their most impressive glass collection. She chose the color and it was off to the foundry. The rest of the story was harrowing – but with a great ending.

Event Horizon

Event Horizon

This glass piece was a fun project because it was my first “design as you go” glass sculpture. No layout lines in advance, just start working and see what happens. I conceived it as horizontal. Hmmm. What do you suppose happened?
