“One Becoming Two”   Kiln cast glass on steel plate  (22″H x 28″W x 3/4″D)

One Becoming Two

cast glass with fused enamel images (57 individual pieces)  2018

My primary research  interest in glass stems from twenty years worth of ideas that combine both glass and photography. For the last two years I’ve been working with kiln cast glass and fused enamel surfaces in the belief that I can develop a unique image-making interface.

Summer 2018 research.

For thirty-five years I’ve been building cameras and optical devices and teaching workshops and classes in the same subject. The following images are of a wax prototype designed to be kiln cast that functions as a small camera obscura that will  produce images. From the front the piece is a figural sculpture with a lens for an eye, from the back view the lens projects an inverted image of what the figure sees.

Van Gogh's Ear #1

Included in my research of kiln cast glass I’ve created a series of wearable glass jewelry that incorporates either fused dichroic surfaces or hand painted oils.  I call it, Cannibal Glass—-“Of the body, For the body”.
