Hi everyone. Instead of showing you my art today, I am going to show you some art I saw on my long weekend to the Finger Lakes in New York state.
One of the towns near where we were staying was Corning, New York. It is the world headquarters of Corning Glass, who are the innovators and makers of pyrex glassware, Corelle dishes, as well as fiber optics along with other industrial and scientific glass products. On the campus of their headquarters, they operate the Corning Glass Museum. Part of the museum shows innovations to glass over time, part of the museum is a huge collection glass pieces from various times in history, and part of the museum shows modern art made from glass.
It was an interesting museum but definitely way too large to see it all in one day. My favorite part was the modern glass art. I'm not that familiar with glass creations and I found it fascinating what glass artists can do.
Here's some of what I saw.
This piece was made from stacked clear glass bars which had a layer of red glass on the bottom. All the bars were the same but I love how they play with the light to look solid red lower in the stack.
The crows in this piece are not glass but the red flowers are. I think it has an amazing gothic feel.
Here's a close up:
Too bad you can see my reflection here, but this piece looks like it has a cloud floating in it.
What's more interesting is if you look at it from the side. Its just layers of glass. I love what it did to the view of my husband standing on the other side.
And the glass lynx.
This painting is a "glass" mosaic.
And I'm not sure I like these snakey candlesticks.
This was my favorite piece. I love all the blue glass butterflies.
I have a lot more to show you from the glass museum another day.
But I do want to show you what arrived in the mail.
The postcard I won last week on Valerie's blog arrived already. Talk about a speedy trip from Germany.
And no line through the stamp. Plus its a pretty flower.
Love this postage "stamped" image too Valerie.
That's all for me. Thanks for visiting.
