This very exciting new piece uses a new technique I have developed, forcing the glass to take on a distressed, crinkled look, as if it was a piece of stiff cloth balled up and then folded out again.
Synapse is 24″ x 23″ x 3″.
Several shades of blues and greens on the black background are enhanced by the clear circular and cracked features (reminding me of nerve synapses – though it’s whatever you want it to be!), another new technique I am perfecting with the success of Trinitas, Cosmos Sculpture and Cosmos Sculpture II.
I made Synapse to be mounted and displayed on a light coloured wall. It is ready for invisible mounting with included hardware.
Some kudos are due here: Many thanks to my good friend and professional photographer Robert Brown for making Synapse look so good in pictures!
Mariner Blue opalescent glass forms the lovely light blue shade; medium cathedral blue (transparent) weaves a whimsical striping effect through this elegant fused art-glass platter.
This follow-up work compliments the reviews Greg received on Something Blue. Greg never duplicates his work but he clearly listened to his customers here: call this colour and style a “limited release”.
