Orange Orb- Extra Large

Orange Orb- Extra Large


Large, orange spherical vessel with raw edge.

Approximate dimensions (Height x Width): 10" X 11" (25.4 cm x 28 cm)

My new series, ‘Carved’ begins with a blown glass form made by gathering and shaping the molten material. Once cooled the glass becomes rigid like stone. I delicately carve the blown glass to create a linear texture and raw edges.

This series highlights glass’s ability to appear and act both liquid and solid. This duality allows me to use hot and cold processes to explore line and texture. The fluid bubble of glass slowly transitions into a rough and jagged edge. My work acts as a visual representation of this transition from liquid to solid; fluidity to rigidity, and strength to fragility.
