Bottles With Soul Fragments

These bottles are solid cast pieces of 100% recycled container glass. Although looking like bottles, they are cast art glass. The shapes were formed by pressing recovered/ discarded bottles into sand. Bottle shards, frit glass, cedar tree sprigs and seed cones were placed into the mold before pouring molten glass into the mold. The combustibles burned out during the pouring process to leave ghost-like etchings on the surface and inside the final work. One side is fire-polished smooth and the other side textured. These sculptures offer an alternate perspective on an everyday form. Provocative and biological, the forms were inspired by the consumerism ever-present in our society.
