Moon Over Manhattan

Janice Charach Gallery 2022

This piece functions as a camera obscura and includes four main sections: a 27 lbs. kiln cast white glass sculpture; a blown glass, suspended light shade with 40W light bulb; an internal, all-glass diorama made of float glass, glass rods and tubes; an optical construction that uses a lens, a mirror and a ground glass focusing screen. Graphite and oil paint were used to color the surface of the moon.

Waxes for 2022 Projects

I have several new pieces under construction that use optics/lenses as critical components of the kiln cast sculptures.

ALSO… I have a decal project going that interfaces with the cast sculptures (all the waxes have been cast and are glass). When complete it will include 40-60 images made of fused decals on glass. The image below is an example of one iteration of an image before firing (it never looks this good after…)
