Tom Cruise Rondell

Trish Duggan
Inspired by childhood memories of the Blue Angels flight team, Duggan created a tribute to her brother-in-law, who taught economics at the Naval Academy. Top Gun also inspired this hand-blown sculpture and features a sand-carved portrait of Tom Cruise in a Navy uniform.
 
“I wanted to create something fun for everyone to enjoy,” said Duggan. “This piece is something anyone can relate to because they have either seen or heard about the movie Top Gun or they may have had an experience similar to mine when they were young and saw these amazing pilots fly overhead during their shows.”

Flight and Illusion

Trish Duggan

The “Flight and Illusion” series by Trish Duggan was explicitly made for the Imagine Museum exhibition at the Tampa International Airport.  The aircraft from the F14, Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, and even the Crew Dragon from Space X aligned with the various bird species communicate the reality of flight in our world from the illusion of our dreams.

Peter Borkovics

The Wheel of Time, 2016

Hungary

Peter Borkovics first became interested in glass because it begins as a liquid. His geometrical, striped elements are simple prisms from the outside. The continuous, parallel stripes symbolize a harmony of nature and the eternal circle of time.
Sydney Hutter

MVV #3: Middy vertical Vase #3. 2017.

USA

Sidney Hutter Glass & Light was formed in 1980 by artist Sidney Hutter. Hutter designs & fabricates original, sculptural glass vessels from his Newton, Massachusetts, studio.

Hutter creates sculptural objects in which the intersection of form, glass, color, & light unite to create works of art with an excellent, ever-changing spectrum of color, reflection, & refraction.

Wilfred Grootens

Magic Eye H36. 2018.

Germany

Wilfred Grootens was born in a small town in the German countryside near the Dutch border. He creates optical illusions through the technique of painting on glass & layering panels into spectacular cubes or oval spheres.

The brush strokes reflect light from certain angles adding volume yet managing to vanish into thin planes of the glass. Each work combines thousands of brush strokes & more than 35 layers of glass.

Petr Hora

Marina. 2016.

Czech Republic

For over 20 years, Petr Hora has explored glass as a fine art material. His influences vary from the ancient arts, the pyramids, contemporary architecture, the human form, & images from nature.

Hora’s compelling use of color & light translates through his work; what appears flawless, minimal, & simple results from intense grinding & polishing. He intends to have the play of light on his sculpture seem so natural that one would not know the tremendous time & talent it takes perfect each piece.

Mark Peiser

Etude Tableau 6. 2015.

USA

Mark Peiser has been perfecting glass techniques for over 40 years, striving to communicate his sense of the world. He remains at Contemporary Glass Art’s epicenter and one of its most acclaimed practitioners.

Peiser has a recurring fascination with music & the sky. He has shared his re-visioning of the sky over the years while exploring format, process, & material.

László Lukácsi

Blue Petals. 2017.

Hungary

László Lukácsi was introduced to the mysteries of glassmaking by his father when he was a pre-teen. His sculptures – in various shades & colors – are made by laminating and then coldworking glass & mirrors.

Lukacsi pushes the physical boundaries of glass as he creates soft, organic forms, inviting the viewing into his magical inner world. He was also the first to use dichroic glass in Hungary.

Paul Stankard

Untitled

USA

Paul Stankard is an internationally acclaimed artist & pioneer in the contemporary glass art movement. He is a living master in paperweight art, represented in more than 60 museums worldwide.

Stankard concentrates on creating the most technically sophisticated botanicals embedded in the glass. When you look closely at the flowers & the bees, remember each particle you see frozen in the glass orb is also flame-worked glass bent to reflect nature by heat.

Winnie Teschmacher

Winnie. Ma. 2016.

The Netherlands

Winnie Teschmacher started working with glass in 1980. She then studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam, continuing her journey in contemporary glass art.

Teschmacher challenges the boundaries for women who work in glass. She has her glass studio & designed for various glass companies and continues to perfect her concept & form through the glass material.

Teschmacher has gained an international reputation; her sculptures are reflective & invite the viewer into her imagined voids.
