Delicate Free Flowing Glass Sculptures by K. William LeQuier

These stunning, free flowing glass sculptures are created by K. William LeQuier by using a unique style he’s developed – carve glass into a myriad of textures using a sandblaster and a diamond saw. Though labor-intensive, this work resulted in unexpected and exciting results. Every sculpture starts with a rough sketch. From that, he produces a template to scale. Then, as the artist explains, “Thin strips of adhesive rubber are arranged one at a time on each plate of glass. When the plate is sandblasted, the rubber acts as a resist. The rest of the plate is cut away leaving only what was protected by the rubber. After each plate is sandblasted the plates are then glued together with a special UV curing epoxy.” Sanding is done with a belt sander and details are carved with a diamond tip. The artist creates the base and armature on which the sculpture rests all by hand.

Nature Inspired Glass Work by Simone Crestani

Simone Crestani is an artist, a designer, and a glassblowing master. He was born in Marostica, in the region of Venice, where he still lives and works. Always admired with wonder and respect the nature, Crestani believes that it is the greatest expression of beauty, that kind of beauty that satisfies the senses, that kind of beauty that only art can approach. That’s the reason why in his work Crestani takes inspiration from natural forms, repurposing them through a decorative key that preserves the elegance and poetry. When asked why he uses glass as medium, Crestani said, “There is no real reason why I chose glass, may be glass picked me. I have been so lucky to fell in love with it when I was young and to learn well its secrets. Having indeed the control of technique allowed me to use it as medium to develop my thoughts.”
