It’s an oxymoron – this movement-driven glass sculpture created in vaporous cobalt blue by Harry Pollitt. Pushing technical bounds with deep excavations and tight overlaps, Come see it.Learn more →
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.

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.

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.

SOLD. Blue Tango is my largest glass piece to date at 2′-2″ tall. During layout, I envisioned a schematic representation of dance… tall and slender with open dynamic upward movement. This spiral glass sculpture emerged.

For this piece, I called upon several elements that I had incorporated in earlier glass works – intersecting lines and curve-over edges. It’s not plagiarism if I steal from myself! But I also included a more open core, multiple penetrations and three tunnels to play with. I sculpted Blue Shift as a donation piece for an AACG Auction.

This glass piece was a fun project because it was my first “design as you go” glass sculpture. No layout lines in advance, just start working and see what happens. I conceived it as horizontal. Hmmm. What do you suppose happened?

On a previous sculpture, I began working with the idea of colliding lines. Attempting to create the illusion of one line passing through another, it was a difficult visual element to pull off. I love the translucent marine blue glass.
