Wes Hunting, "Statuesque in Cabernet"

Description

Wes Hunting`s Colorfield series began in 1984 and has evolved into the present work today. The title "colorfield" refers to the intense color and patterns which Wes "draws" onto the glass` surface at temperatures exceeding 1,600 degrees. "Tower Red" by Wes Hunting mixes elements of his renowned Colorfield series with his stunning Optical series, which is characterized by intricate designs enclosed in a black frame of glass. The top portion of this stunning glass tower is created using the Millefiori technique. Much of Wes`s artistic style is his masterful rendering of the Italian glasswork technique called "millefiori", which translates to a thousand flowers. This technique is synonymous with the glass masters of Venice and Murano, where Wes has drawn inspiration.
