Graham Caldwell’s Prismatic Blown Glass Sculptures

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Graham Caldwell’s glass-blown, welded sculptures gleam like insect eyes, refracting the viewer’s reflection into myriad distorted parts. The Washington D.C.-based artist works with hypnotizingly shiny surfaces, which he arranges into shapes that resemble various natural processes. In one piece, teardrop-shaped glass vessels explode from a central point like a flower blossom. In others, irregular, prismatic arrangements of multi-colored glass coalesce into crystal-like shapes. While Caldwell’s work at times evokes the natural world, his final products are sleek and oftentimes look manufactured despite his hand-done processes.
