A sultry 16″ square decorative platter in solid black with deep red fissures.
There’s a lot of emotion going on in this work, both on and under the surface.
Perhaps the owner of such a piece can share this sentiment!
Simple in overall shape, this cube-like lamp design is all about the glass – the rich, dramatic textured hand-rolled variations in greens, blood-browns, caramels, and white (note the mottled effect in some of the glass – it’s wonderful). You’ll see that Greg has utilized this form factor before.
Pre-cut glass of this nature is a work of art in itself – it’s almost a shame to work it into another form! Which is why you’ll notice larger swaths of colour accentuate naturally-forming ebbs and flows of both. There are no “random” shapes in these panels: colour and texture choices interweave to create a dramatic presentation, celebrating the glass.
The video clip below the slideshow reveals in motion this flow between each panel – delicious!
Greg made this window panel as the third in the series of gothic church-peaked themed pieces. It is smaller than the first two, measuring 23 1/2″ x 55 1/2″.
Most notably, it has been selected as a feature branding piece for a King Township community organization for 2009: find out here.
