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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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?

Unfathomable

Unfathomable

On a previous sculpture, I began working with the idea of colliding lines. Attempting to create the illusion of one line passing through another, it was a difficult visual element to pull off. I love the translucent marine blue glass.
