Art Glass Sculpture
Created by David Jacobson
This is a hot-sculpted glass head sitting on a blown glass rock. The head is decorated with glass canes and bits of colored glass. The rock is made up of apricot-colored glass frit, and glass canes of orange, red and burgundy colors. White glass frit floats on top. In making the head, the artist heats, pulls and presses it, and pinpoint heats with a small torch so he can manipulate smaller areas with control. The head does balance on its own, but is permanently attached to the rock for security.
