Robert Levin

I was originally attracted to hot glass because of its liquid qualities and sense of immediacy. I have always tried to capture some of the elegance, fluidity, gesture, and whimsy which I feel are inherent properties of glass. I formulate many of my own glass colors, and often use layers of different colors within each piece to create subtle shading or contrast. The approaches I use are eclectic and personal at the same time -- sort of a blend of Late Venetian and Early Neurotic.

Material: Glass

Description

Assorted frosted glass vegetables.  Before you say a tomato is a fruit, here you go.  Botanically speaking a tomato is a fruit (a berry).  Agriculturally speaking a tomato is a vegetable.  Artist Robert Levin creates these pieces that are only slightly larger than reality, and would create a beautiful still life grouping.  Robert formulates and melts most of the colored glass he uses in his work.  Each piece is free-blown and hot-worked, then frosted by sand-blasting and acid-etching.
