Cube On Cubes
I've always liked the Platonic solids -- Sphere, Cube, Cone etc. -- but I have a special affinity for the cubic form, especially when executed in glass.
I love the internal relctions that radiate unexpectedly around the form, and the interplay of interior and exterior if you cut it iinto pieces and reassemble, or alternatively, glue sections together with colored glue to complete an exterior cubic sculpture (See my "Cut Cube" and "Cubic Planets" Series for example.)
This piece incorporates early experiences playing with wooden blocks, and specifically the fun of watching them fall from a container into a pile.
Maybe the work will bring back some childhood memories for you too.
