These sculptures are some of my latest works, the result of experiments I pursued at a recent residency at the Corning Museum of Glass. While they relate to my Incalmo Orb sculptures in their abstract imagery, the detailed layers of immersed glass captures the beautiful way hot glass moves in a new and distinct way. These one-of-a-kind pieces begin as solid sculptures, similar to the Infusion sculptures in my studio line, and are then kiln-cast into thick blocks or panels, and carved and polished. These are paintings done in glass, where the thick depth of overlapping fields of glass color creates a rich and sumptuous texture.
