Cage 25, copper, glass

Scott, who has a BFA in Metals and an MFA in Glass, blows hot glass into electroformed copper shells, causing the glass to slump into the copper grids.

At first glance, it seems as if we reached out and touched them we would be met with soft, billowy, quilted fabric, but looks can be deceiving, yes? See many more of these vessels at Chappell Gallery.

    Hi Susan its all in the blowing, no slumping here, we are called blowers, slumpers called slumpers, theres a huge dollar/training/experience, difference, I am inspired by this work, thank you for publishing. Wayne (a glass blower person)
