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.
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.
