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.

Sentinel

Sentinel

I’m continually inspired by re-thinking (and thus always eager to try variations of) my own work. My #27 kiln-cast piece is an open design glass sculpture influenced by previous pieces — and by #26, which had failed at the foundry. Come take a look at the final result as well as a few progress photos.

Sentinel | 2′-4″ h, 11″ diameter | Kiln cast crystal | Dark Orange Red | Inquire.

Fluid Dynamics

Fluid Dynamics

Fluid Dynamics: Over a year in the making and a real envelope-pusher for the foundry. Given degree of difficulty, this piece may reach parity with my more complex wood sculptures. What do you think?

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.

Awakening: I used two human-esque elements opposite to each other to create this figure stretching upward, greeting a red dawn.

Mystic Light

Mystic Light

Engineering plays a central role in my designs. Not very romantic, I know, but the undulating and double back curves are planned engineering elements designed to support things like cantilevers. I love cantilevers, as you’ll notice, when you take a look at Mystic Light.
