Contained – Mixed media sculpture – optical glass and bronze



This sculpture utilizes leaded crystal that is so dense it can be used as a radiation shield.  However it is so optically clear that it appears weightless.  The glass gives the illusion of sliding down, or crushing the bronze cylinder that supports it.  A physically daunting piece to handle.  Dimensions: 14 inches H x 12 inches W x 7 inches D  weight 60 pounds.

The high lead content in this glass gives the simple form incredible internal color dispersion (fire).  Expect a spectacular display of colored light passing through this sculpture.
