gah! look at these outstanding blown glass art pieces from wisconsin artist ann alderson cabezas! beauty, in her opinion, is a combination of simple themes found in nature and her favorite medium, glass – with its joyous, miraculous balance of fragility and strength. ann first creates her stunning pieces by blowing a hollow sphere of glass. subsequent sandblasting allows her to remove unwanted areas to create a dynamic interplay between the texture and structure. vibrant colors are then hand painted and fired onto the vessels as the finishing touch.
i am blown away by the meticulous precision of this work, and also love the organic themes and playful sense of humor.
find these magical pieces and more at the artful home.
