The glass universe is my new series of glass sculptures which is being featured in Glass Line Magazine this summer (Aug-Sept 2012)!
The Glass Art Universe
As a third generation glass artist I have always strived to create new techniques that have never been seen before. It is always fun to view a complex art piece and wonder how it was made. Just as any person who appreciates fine art, I have collected pieces from other artists over the years.
As a collector, it is a great achievement to own a featured art piece. With my new series using a new technique I came up with last month, the opportunity to offer featured art pieces was born. Glass Line Magazine has always been a great source of information and instruction on glass art. This Magazine is going to publish a complete feature of how my new glass sculpture universe is made.
Included in this magazine there will be six sculptures that will be displayed in the gallery section of the article. These will make a great addition to a serious art collection. The Glass Sculpture created in the feature will also be available.
The magazine article goes to print in mid July. The feature art piece reward will need to be committed by July 7th, for the new owner to be listed in the magazine feature. The project feature itself will be written and submitted to the editor by June 30th. The editor has approved the project concept, topic and outline. This is the 4th article I have written for this magazine so working with the staff is well orgainzed and problem free. The Glass Art Universe Sculptures will be made and delivered throughout the project. All pieces will be mailed prior to the end of August. The magazines will be mailed as soon as they are printed. They are due to hit the news stands in August as well.
Universe Art pieces will be created as your support comes in. With the stars being created with dichroic glass and further planets and comets formed with pure silver, the cost of the necessary materials requires the support of you.
The support of this project will allow me to continue on my quest of new ways to melt and shape multen glass into fine art. Most of all, it will help me share my passion for glass with all of you!
The Artistic Interpretation is one of the most intriguing things about art. One person may view the white planet in the sculpture and feel that it shines bright adding light to their world. Just as their child who they are so proud of. Or perhaps, the planet reminds them of a challenging moment in life where they felt alone, but remained strong and made it through. The meanings are endless and truly fit the desire of each viewer. What meaning does one hold for you?

Master Collector. This is a one time opportunity to own the Glass Universe created in the Magazine Feature! It gets even better... Your name will be listed in the magazine as the owner "In the private collection of____". AND, you can include a comment of what this sculpture means to you. "It reminds me of....". This will be a Large Glass Universe closer to the 1 3/4" to 2" size and filled with detail. Two signed magazines and post cards will also be included. A special Hand formed metal base will be made for displaying "Your" universe! The Deadline to have your information included in the magazine is July 7th. After that date, the feature art piece will be available without the owner being listed as the private collection it belongs to.Estimated delivery: Aug 2012
