This is the 3rd piece in my "Brushstrokes" series inspired by color splotches and brushstrokes...

I'm trying out the "multiple views" for one submission idea again. It seems to work well with this piece as all the views relate very well to one another.

This piece was blown solo, with no assistants at Scott benefield's studio back in October '05. I just finished the engraving on it as well. It will be one of the first new pieces to go on my "new" website, which should be going live by the end of the month.

The piece took about 4 hours to blow, and then I spent around 15 hours engraving it... It's a 5 part encalmo, switch axis.

About 18" tall

I do a lot of 3D renders and specifically glass renders. I was wondering if I could make something heavily inspired by your work.

how did you engrave the groovey scale looking things in it?
i love how they distort the colours, and pull it along with the light.
its awesome. :)

Thanks very much! Those were engraved using diamond impregnated brass wheels that spin on a water-fed lathe. One at a time... All done by hand. It's a tedious, but rewarding process!

I'm in love with the differences in texture and color. o.o;;;;;

It's like it's fluid and not at the same time. ^ ^

I think that's kind of how glass is... Fluid, yet not... At the same time... :D

this is absolutely incredible, beautiful colors...i have always loved pink and orange together. i know this is probably something you arleady explained but how do you get the precise cuts on the surface? the honey comb pattern i mean. My roomate does glasswork but ive never seen anything like that. the form is awesome, it feels like it might start to levitate or something. really fabulous work.

It's done with an engraving lathe and diamond wheels. If you cut a bunch of circles at the right distance from each other, you will get the honeycomb pattern. It's quite tricky. There are many people who are much better. I'm still experimenting and practicing and playing around. But I really like the potential!

not like you need to hear it again, but this is a very nice piece. I've just recently entered the world of glass. I can only cast it though because I do not have access to an open furnace.

Thanks. Welcome to the glass world! I hope it's quite prosporous and enjoyable for you!

Hopefully you'll get some blowing access sometime soon.

It'll be worth the wait. I assure you:D

Wow, this piece really strikes me for some reason. I just think it is utterly cool. Something about how the colors and the patterns and the shape of the vessel all work together brilliantly. I shall fav it. Very nice!

Thanks very much sir... (Now I've got to go check out this gun you speak of!)

Wow. Pretty nice. That reminds me of this wooden bike this guy from my old school made. It was an entire bike, made entirely out of nothing but wood. Over 1000 hours of work. It was incredible! Even a wooden chain and lock. It had 4000 pieces or something insane like that. It was gorgeous.
