At the center of this piece is the Pure & Innocent Heart, uniquely cast from clear transparent and opaque white art glasses. The distinctive glass heart is positioned on a handmade, three-dimensional frame specifically designed to complement the heart. This particular frame is kilncarved from white, black and gray glasses. The art work is hung using a two-part aluminum French cleat (included). Signed on reverse side. Approximate size: 6.5"w x 6.5"h x .67"d.
White represents peace, goodness, innocence and purity. It symbolizes new beginnings, such as having a clean slate. Physics tells us that since white nor black have their own specific wavelengths, neither one is an actual color. While white light contains all wavelengths of visible light, black is the absence of visible light.
How It's Made:
This unique, handmade art glass piece is created over several weeks incorporating various kilnforming techniques and processes including kiln casting, kilncarving, grinding, sandblasting and polishing. Four separate kiln firings are required to complete.
- All art work is handmade by Robert Wiener in the DC Art Glass Studio. Kilnforming is a method of shaping glass in a kiln using heat and gravity. Techniques used by the artist include fusing, slumping, casting, printmaking and coldworking. It is common of kilnformed glass to have slight color shifts and small "champagne" bubbles.
