|Marc Petrovic with Jonathan Chapman work in the hot shop to shape the glass into a dimensional piece.|
Using Bullseye colored glass, Marc cuts the sheet glass, arranges and fuses it into abstract patterned slabs (beautiful as an abstract flat plate). He then uses the “Aussie Roll-up” technique to transform them into incredibly detailed blown glass sculptures. If you are familiar with Marc’s work, his knowledge of anatomy of (seemingly all) living creatures comes into play, as his work easily travels between obsessive, meditative labor, visionary abstraction and poignant representation. He has been working on this show for most of the past year, and it really shows in the beauty and detail of the work.
