Large Hemisphere 10

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by Brian Russell
The Hemisphere Series spans nearly a decade and consists of hundreds of unique vessel form sculptures, each based upon a simple hemispherical starting point, the blank canvas. Using the lost wax technique of casting, the artist manipulates the basic wax hemisphere into fantastical fluid shapes, carving, twisting, bending and even hammering the wax. This wax model is then invested in a refractory mold, melted out and the mold then filled with molten lead crystal. Thus the original wax form is lost and the resultant glass piece is a unique sculpture. The hot forged steel structure adds support as well as another level of visual complexity and contrast.
