What’s Math Got To Do With It? was inspired by Pinnacle. It started out simple enough, a top-down approach. Do that spire on top. Then get the flow just right.

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.
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.

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.

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.
