Unfathomable
Aquamarine
1′-6″ h, 8″ dia.

Marine blue glass sculpture

I began working with the idea of colliding lines on my last piece, Firth of Forth. At 1’-6″ tall, this was my largest piece to date. And working the deep recesses of this form was quite challenging.

Large, Recesses and Challenging

After Firth of Forth, I continued the idea, attempting to create the illusion of one line passing through another. It was a difficult visual element to pull off.  When you looked at it, I wanted you to see the lines match up perfectly.

The completed work was already named Unfathomable.  It was exhibited by Traver Gallery, Seattle. And it was purchased by the Boeing Corporation for installation on the corporate yacht. I am beyond pleased and honored by their acquisition. I’m also struck by a perhaps accidental, but nonetheless inescapable, connection — between the sculpture’s color and title to its new marine environment.
