American glass artist David Bennett creates complex bronze and glass sculptures.
 

 

Tourquoise Handstand. Glass and bronze sculpture.

Artisans have been blowing glass into metal forms for two thousand years. We are pushing the technique. We can make complex forms in glass and bronze that we could not do in either medium alone. The glass is liquid and shimmering.

The metal structures— rigid and formal in a way that glass alone can’t be— literally allow us to build a cage that holds glass shooting through the air.

We are using LEDs (light emitting diodes) to illuminate the glass sculptures from within. LEDs have a long life and make the sculpture glow. This adds a complete new dimension to the work.
