As promised, here are my favorite “not black and white” artworks from the Corning Museum of Glass. The combination of technique and brilliant colors in these pieces mezmerized me.
This was probably my favorite piece, a flock of abstract boats made by a Venetian while living in Seattle. These pieces float in the air, moving ever so slightly in unseen slight winds.
No idea why the title “Blood Sugar” but the chaotic and yet somewhat organized display of bottles, vases, and glasses is just so appealing to me.
When this artist hears music, she sees colors. Once I learned that, this bowl was even more beautiful and it made me wonder what music she was listening to that inspired its creation.
The glow in this bowl, with the tiny bubbles on the edges of each scallop, was simply brilliant.
If you’re going to have fun with glass, this is the way to go. The whole piece was so comical but this part was my favorite.
What struck me about these pieces was how each artist started with the same material (glass) and created something so amazingly different from everyone else. Truly artistic vision at work and incredibly inspiring to me as a photographer.
Color is my daylong obsession, joy, and torment.
