The Tower

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by Helen Rudy
"The Tower" is a sculptural piece for outdoors or indoors. The steel frame has a heavy base that can be anchored if you choose to exhibit this outside within a flower garden, patio, or public space. The steel fame is powder coated with a copper bronze finish.

The steel armature has glass tiles inset into each square. It comprises narrow strips of hand cut glass. The glass is sorted into graded hues of blues and is then assemble like dominoes on their edge. To add complexity, a diagonal sequence of contrasting sunny yellow is interjected into the design.

The glass is fired to a sintered texture where the glass gets sticky enough to adhere each strip together. The firing creates a defined textural appearance to the glass surface that begs to be touched. The texture also catches and refracts light making it very appealing to view. Weighs approximately 75 lbs. Signed by the artist.
