Grant Garmezy Create Realistic Animal Sculptures Out Of 2,300-Degree Glass
For almost ten years I have been making sculptural glass objects with the intention of pushing the boundaries of glass sculpting to create something new and original.
Through this series, I wanted to recreate the idea of the hunter’s trophy using glass. Hot glass is an amazing material in that it can look look like any other material in the world – fur, wood, metal, stone, ice, fire, water – and the list goes on. I use this unique aspect of glass to help bring these trophies to life. By catching movement and adding spectacular color, I tried to create pieces that were recognizable yet spectacular.
Messing around with an idea for a winter/trickster deity (also shown here) who wears a variety of masks and can be fairly dark/ambivalent but is generally harmless unless provoked. They are split down the middle and can open themselves to an unending maw of darkness.
Philippe Druillet’s art style, and his strange baroque technology with huge Lovecraftian horror monsters makes for a lot of visually interesting storytelling. Plot-wise they’re not really my favorites, but the visual hook is quite wonderful I think.
The Star Smith, a heart leaking nebulae, and the ability to craft nearly anything; they can make nothing that truly pleases themselves.
I thought Sushi Dragons might be cute.
