VIRGINIA SMITH'S GLASSWORK

NextNext
Certain of my indoor and outdoor metal sculptures have shapes that lend themselves to being embellished and enhanced with wondrous panels of glass which Virginia creates for me. Once I have assessed and supported the sculptures metal frame I send it off to her. She uses antique hand-blown glass, jewels, beveled glass, abstractly painted textures and patterns which are fired in the kiln for permanence. Using the collage method she arranges the lead came and fused pieces of recycled glass. At times the hand made art glass, unique to each piece can simply be suspended from the sculpture, but in other instances must be welded into place creating a unique juxtaposition of glass and metal transforming into it's final kinetic, sculptural form.
