Rearrangeable Layers of Glass Form Stunning 3D Landscapes and Seascapes #ArtTuesday

Mountain

Check out the beautiful glass work of Lucie Boucher and Bernie Huebner here!

MyModernMet has a nice write up:

Lucie Boucher and Bernie Huebner of Stone Ridge Glass are the creators of Glasscapes, stunning three dimensional sculptures made of layers of colored glass. Many of the works are interactive, meaning that the glass layers can be rearranged to take on completely different scenes. For the seascape piece above, called Ocean Laughter II, the glass pieces each represent a separate wave. They can be arranged to look like a restless ocean or a harmonious work of geometric art.

The glass pieces are hand-cut or sawn, ground, and painted with specialized pigments. Then, they’re fused or fire-polished in an electric glass kiln. To give the illusion that each landscape is floating in space, a dark hardwood base is used as a stand.

Each of the pieces is illuminated by a light that’s at the rear of the hardwood base. The light reflects off the wall behind it giving the sculptures an ethereal glow.
