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.
