Glass art collectors group visits Pollitt Studio

Glass art collectors group visits Pollitt Studio

Now 33 doesn’t sound like a big number…until you see how big the bus was that dropped off 33 glass art collectors (members of Glass Alliance Northern California) at our home and my studio recently. See photos of their visit. We had a great time, tasty box lunch, and plenty of Q&A about my glass sculptures and wood art.

Blue Tango dances into spotlight of Cleveland glass art collectors

Blue Tango dances into spotlight of Cleveland glass art collectors

It’s as if Blue Tango danced into this splendid spotlight and was captivated and captured. Our sincere appreciation to the Cleveland glass art collectors who loved my spiral glass sculpture enough to take it into their home and display it so dramatically. Additional thanks to the team at Thomas R. Riley Galleries for bringing us all together.

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.

Levitation | 11″ h, 1′-9″ w, 12″ d | Kiln cast crystal, Lime Green | SOLD

Canyon Song

Canyon Song

Canyon Song was my second attempt at running a penetration from top to bottom. The color and shape remind me of pictures I’ve seen of the canyon lands in Arizona. I must see that someday – and envision myself standing inside one of my own sculptures.

Canyon Song | 1′-4″ h, 10″ diameter | Kiln cast crystal | Apricot | SOLD

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.

Unfathomable | 1′-6″ h, 8″ diameter | Kiln cast crystal | Aquamarine | SOLD by Traver Gallery

Firth of Forth

Firth of Forth

Tunneling in any medium is a difficult and challenging proposition. I used a wood boring bit with an electric drill and quickly learned that I must go very slowly or the frictional heat of the drill melted the wax – and then fused the drill in place. Fun! The piece is named in honor of my Mother who was born in Scotland not far from Firth of Forth.

Firth of Forth | 9″ h, 10″ diameter | Kiln cast crystal | Jade Green | SOLD
