If it wasn’t clear I’ve become addicted to interestingly lit glass work, then this will probably cement it. Featured at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, this artist’s use of Eastern imagery seemed a little exploitative and reductive when viewed alongside all of the other “Far East” kitsch that they had on offer, but I felt that the way they set up these glass busts was gorgeous.
Perfectly aged, dirtied where it improved the aesthetic, and clear enough to be enhanced by well-placed spotlights, I could not help but stop to take a few pics.
A collection of hanging tubes and the wires that support that. Almost sounds like a political insult.
This installation was yellow, but I thought the stark contrast between the wires and the tubes was more interesting than the color.
Another gorgeous piece of glasswork. If only I had $10,000 to spend on one piece of art.
Snapped this pic at a booth at the ADHDS 2014. Despite a large collection of glasswork there, this particular booth showed some of the most impressive combinations of glass and backlighting.
At the AD Home Design Show in NYC this weekend, we saw the work of Alison Sigethy. Working out of Virginia, Alison creates amazing glass and water multimedia pieces. Her pieces are spellbinding, resembling crystalline reefs.
Very cool exhibition!
Met this skinny gentleman at the Architectural Digest Home Show. One of the exhibitors painted this skeleton (real, mind you) with one of their newest paints. He was kind enough to pose for a portrait.
Makes me wonder if he would have minded in life.
