Art Glass Sculpture

Created by Joshua Solomon
Mimicking organic cell growth, these stacked spheres are in the process of multiplying. Each hand blown sphere is made freehand without the use of a mold. Once the pieces have cooled to room temperature, extensive carving with diamond tools create the radial lines and textures on the surface. A final etching with a sandblaster results in a soft and luminous satin finish. A clear acrylic ring is included for display. Pieces are separate and able to be repositioned.
