Attention all artists! In partnership with our friends at Squarespace, Hi-Fructose is highlighting five artists who are currently using Squarespace for their website or portfolio. This week’s feature is blown-glass sculptor Etai Rahmil, who creates colorful and fanciful trumpets out of his studio in Berkeley, California. Using traditional glass blowing techniques and specializing in multi-color, Rahmil’s trumpets pay homage to his contemporary inspirations. As in his vibrant piece “Bold as Love”, a tribute to Jimi Hendrix, Rahmil borrows the colors and motifs from a concert poster created by David Byrd for the Jimi Hendrix Experience at the Fillmore East. Other works employ intricate patterns and take more liberty with the trumpet’s shape, transforming it into flowers, snowflakes, and budding branches in his “Symphony of the Seasons” series with Phil Siegel. “I am constantly working to push my own limits,” he says.
