Art Glass Sculpture

Created by Helen Rudy
this item has not yet been reviewed  
The Totem, this feisty sculptural panel is a chameleon. Careful selection of copper dichroic glass and cherry red creates a panel with many personalities. In bright light the dichroic glass changes colors and sparkles. In low light the background dims and the dichroic glass pops like a traffic light and stares back at you.

Hand cut squares and rectangles of layered on top of each other. The glass is fired in a kiln to 1500 degrees until it becomes fused into one single piece of glass.

The Totem, has a custom made steel stand which has been powder coated black to complement the art panel.

About this Artist

Helen Rudy

" I am interested in how colors mix and react to create depth and balance in the piece. I focus on the subtle effects light can have on the art."

Helen Rudy came to creating beautiful fused glass pieces from a non-traditional background in construction management. Her attention to color detail, layering, and saturation heralds back to her degree. Her crisp and clean designs clearly focus on the interaction of light and its effect on the glass.

Each piece of glass is measured and hand cut. By layering one color or many different colors on top of each other, a bright and bold design is created. The glass is first fired in a kiln to about 1500 degrees F to melting or fusing point. Sometimes a second firing is needed to create a shape. The glass can be in the kiln for several days before finishing.

Almost entirely self taught, Rudy attended workshops with Milon Townsend, and Lisa Voigt, attended the Pilchuck Scool of Glass to study with Alicia Lomne, and in 2011 studied casting Pate De Verre with Anna Boothe.
