Art Glass Sculpture
Created by Mira Woodworth
With the crystalline beauty of a geode, this richly textured sculpture is a treasure of kiln-formed reclaimed glass, pigments, and variegated copper foil. Each piece undergoes an extensive multi-step process. Attention is given to creating dramatic undulations and small voids. Includes a raw steel stand to display the sculpture. The steel stand is intended to change over time, gradually darkening and achieving small amounts of surface rust to create a juxtaposition between the stand and the glossy surface of the glass. It is possible to achieve the surface rust sooner; simply wipe the stand with a damp sponge periodically without drying to introduce water. The stand will arrive with felt pads attached to the bottom to protect furniture surfaces from the raw metal. To clean, dust with a moist cloth. Avoid allowing water or any other liquid to seep into the texture of the piece as it may dislodge metal leafing.
