this project had totally different intentions. I spend about 20 hours carving a baby out of wax and the mold was too weak and it broke in the kiln causing the form to be hollow and incomplete. but the fact that it didn't fill out was actually a lot more interesting. i was really bad with documenting this but i did take some pretty neat pictures when the wax was in peices. the details were extremely hard to capture in photograph. whatever.

I'm sure you're familiar with his work.. it's becoming pretty mainstream. nothing better than pure black and white drawings of tattoos and hot chicks. This is who I chose to do a project my teacher my teacher assigned us. pick a non-glass artist and make something out of glass inspired by them. If you don't know him check him out.
The first piece i made was the larger black and white one but then i got on this big kick about making female torsos after that.

I am very west coast influenced & I love glass as a medium because of its fragility and clarity. I also have a love affair with the fluid motion of painting. I am interested in split second happenings, moments. They escape you and you can never have that momentain. I am interested in the the possibility of conserving that moment. Making it continue to happen. This is one of my goals as a visual artist. I like tattoos because they can tell a lot about where a person has been and who they are. I am intrigued by absolute femininity being crossed with harsh things. Color makes me feel alive - bright annoying in your face color that forces you to contrast it to the darker morbid side of things. The most common themes in my work are death, gluttony and obsession.
