Aqua Barrel Wave
Art Glass Sculpture
This ocean wave series focuses on the continual crest of the ocean before the wave breaks. Numerous large strands of liquid glass are added onto a long cylindrical hot glass tube. The tube is then manipulated with torches and free handed tools to sculpt the desired shape of the crest the wave takes. The color and foam are then sculpted onto the cresting edge of the piece to make the wave seem about to crash, but also frozen in motion.
