Beach Horizon Glass Art Sculpture

The Beach Horizon glass art sculpture is an abstract ‘nod’ to the dance between the beach and the ocean. The two sculptural glass forms are paired together to perform this never-ending dance. The yellow gold amber colored glass form becomes a strand-plain… Always stretching towards the ocean; a shoreline reaching for the water. The blue glass form’s movement mimics with a certain independence, the ever reaching shore.

The imagination of the viewer is what completes the story.   The hues within… The glass pieces display yellow-gold and amber hues. These colors aid in the visual bond found within the artwork. Senado is a contemporary one-of-a-kind glass...

Glass Blowing – blocking and papering hot glass

A short video clip of Bernard Katz with his glass blowing team blocking and papering a hot gather of glass. This is the final gather of glass for a custom glass sculpture. The video clip was taken during one very hot humid day in August.  When glass blowing wet wooden blocks and wet folded newspaper is used to shape hot gathers of glass. The hot glass is actually riding on a thin layer of steam between either the wet wooden block or wet newspaper. The blow pipe has to be constantly turning when riding on this layer of steam. If the blow pipe stops turning while in contact with the wooden...
