New Work

Green Piece,an emerald green Pollitt glass sculpture invites you to travel through the turns and twists of its 1'-2" high x 4" diameter design.

Green Piece

Pollitt Small Treasures is joined by Green Piece, an undulating, sweeping 1′-2″ high x 4″ diameter glass sculpture. Complexity of the design is simplified by a seldom-used Pollitt medium polish finish. Its kiln cast color is emerald green.

Harry Pollitt - Bashert glass sculpture

Bashert

Harry Pollitt’s latest sculpture is aptly named, Bashert. Improbable events and unexpected results surround the story of this kiln cast glass sculpture. The best explanation is that it was “meant to be.” Come read why.

Harry Pollitt - jade green Pinnacle glass sculpture

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.

Blue Pyro

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!

Harry Pollitt - cobalt blue Coriolis glass sculpture

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.

Harry Pollitt - cobalt blue Enigma glass sculpture

Enigma

Some months back, I stumbled upon a long forgotten, unfinished wood sculpture. I had abandoned it because I had excavated it so much that I could not execute my intended design. The dangers of reduction art! Now, I’ve given it another try – this time converting the sculptural concept in wood to a glass sculpture.

Harry Pollitt - Sentinel glass sculpture

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.
