On a Wing and a Prayer

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by Susan Bloch
Glass sculpture is sand carved with silica carbide, a very fine silica abrasive. Preparation begins in the kiln giving the surface a gentle glow. Diamond-tip engraving, polishing, and color highlight other areas. Cutting pieces of resist with an exacto knife opens areas for carving. Adjusting the volume and pressure controls the force and flow of abrasive. Continuing with various other tools enhances the image and surrounding area. Dimensions below include the stand. The glass is 8"H, 8"W, .25"D and has polished edges. The extruded aluminum stand is 2"H, 8.75"W, 2"D and has a hard anodized brushed black finish. It has precision molded hard plastic end caps with black felt applied to the glass slot and the bottom. Clean the glass with a cotton or microfiber lint-free cloth or dust with a soft feather duster. Dampen the cloth with rubbing alcohol to clean any spots with the exception of colored areas. Dusting colored areas of glass is preferred to wet-cleaning.
