Mirror Sculpture

Today I am looking at a mirror sculpture.

I’ve spent the morning watching videos of glass.  I have a hard time picking out just one that I want to share.  I struggle to find a video that I think is the right one to share.  I know that when I see “the one” I will know it.  After what seemed like hours of viewing, this little video popped up on my screen and I knew that this was the one that I wanted to share.  It is raw and personal and the mirror sculpture is beautiful.

Here is a companion video.

Artwork On Glass

Today I am looking at a fun and creative project video, Fork You Window Project.

The information for this video simply stated, Making of New York City landscape. Artwork on glass at Fork You, A newly opened American Diner in Hauz Khas Village, Delhi. 

I think it would be fun to have a restaurant with an artist or artists working to create a new artwork on the storefront windows every day/night.  Talk about fun entertainment.  If you were the owner or a waiter you would go broke because people like me would come and wouldn’t leave because I don’t want to miss the finished artwork!

Stephanie Trenchard‘s glass sculptures are simply amazing.  I found this video interview with Stephanie on the Jane Sauer Gallery website and I found it very interesting.  In the video Stephanie talks about her work and the process that she uses to make her amazing pieces.

IT IS FRIDAY!!!

It is POURING RAIN here in North Carolina this morning.  The kind of downpour that  floods the streets and makes you dread going outside.  It is a good day to be a duck.

Glass Panels by Paul Messink

Today I am looking at thick glass panels by Paul Messink.

I’ve seen Paul Messink’s glass panels on Pinterest and Facebook.  Today, I am looking at the panels that he has available at ArtfulHome.com.  I love the depth that these panels have.  I want to touch them.

Glass artist Paul Messink creates multi-layered glass panels that reflect the natural world and exhibit incredible dimensionality. He is interested in natural elements such as trees, fences, and cemetery headstones which disappear into the distance, making viewers want to explore the landscape.

Messink’s panels are made of 9 to 12 layers of glass which are stacked together, then fused into a solid piece up to 1.5 inches thick. Portions of each image are hand-painted onto individual layers of glass with glass enamel. The finished piece can be displayed in a gallery stand, and looks spectacular when lit from behind.

Making Art From Plate Glass

Today I am looking at sculptures by New-York based American Glass Master sculptor, Henry Richardson.

Henry Richardson’s use of plate glass forges a new path in this medium, having in the past been explored primarily by architects and not sculptors for the past 60 years. To that he was named winner of the 2012 Artist of Year award by the Design Centers of Americas.

From a design perspective, Richardson’s works bring light and energy to both indoor and outdoor environments. He views glass as translucent stone and works with this medium as most sculptors approach stone or metal — because of this, his pieces feel light, their heaviness visually reduced by the translucency of the glass. Each work, at times, has a crystalline or ice-like quality, imparting a sense of both timelessness and impermanence — a contradiction in many aspects of life.

With his new slate of works Richardson brings more exploration of color and movement. For example in one piece he uses three twisting columns, so like a screw turning as the viewer moves around the piece it creates the effect of changing form; color reflects both the artist’s feelings when creating the piece and the emotion it evokes from the viewer’s own experiences.

Residential Screen by Sarah Galloway

Today I am looking at a new residential glass screen by UK architectural glass artist, Sarah Galloway.  Not only does Sarah’s screen give this London home a lovely forest view, it has  created an opportunity to add beautiful artwork to the home.

“Created for a private residence, the illuminated external glass screen in Mayfair extends to the entire height of the rear elevation.  The abstract design provides both visual interest and ambient light in each level of the house.

I used a combination of coloured resin and deep sandblasting to ensure that the artwork creates a sense of space by giving a feeling of looking through a wooded bucolic scene. This concept is effectively enhanced through the use of backlighting, providing a perception of being in the countryside whilst in the heart of London.”

I’m Feeling the Holiday Spirit

Thanksgiving came and went with a flurry of good cheer and good food.

With the feeling of thankfulness still in my heart, it is time to look forward to the season of giving.  December is a time for creative decoration.  I enjoy watching the new ideas that people use to decorate their homes and businesses.
