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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
