Explore how glass is made and the techniques artists use to create colorful & intricate glass works. Melting Point will be on display at the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery Dec 9, 2022 - Feb 12, 2023.
When three common natural materials – sand, soda ash and limestone – are melted at very high temperatures they form glass. Artists turn glass into anything they can imagine. Dale Chihuly’s work embraces flowing lines and shapes. April Lemon uses glass to create whimsical lily pads. AlBo artists create elegant and practical glass from smooth bowls to the translucent wonder of stained glass. Preston Singletary’s work is full of appealing textures. Roberta Eichenberg creates intriguing sculptures.
You’ll find all the forms and techniques of glass art in Melting Point. Explore the work of Studio Glass artists who use this versatile material to create colorful and intricate works.
