Human-esque glass sculpture

Taking a curve and bending it back on itself is what I do. I love the flow and feel of the undulation. That movement is also an important structural element in this almost human-esque glass sculpture.

Cast in Dark Orange Red gives this undulating glass sculpture by Harry Pollitt mood and motion.

With Awakening, I used two such elements opposite to each other to create this figure stretching upward, greeting a red dawn. A big stretch and the day begins. There is tension in this piece and at the same time palpable serenity.

Creating AWAKENING … wax sculpture, glass from foundry, finished work

Wax cylinder for early stages of cast glass sculpture process Rough sculpted wax for Awakening begins to look like Pollitt's design concept, but much more wax needs removing for full sweeps and curves.Wax stage completed.
