Matthew Curtis: Gold & Ruby Constructed Bowl
Matthew Curtis is repeatedly drawn to the complexity and beauty of the microscopic architecture of living organisms. “I am interested in capturing a depth and complexity to the blown and cast glass components I produce, where the finish of the sculpture captures a veiled aesthetic,” said Curtis. His glass structures invite viewers to contemplate an illusory experience of discovery, a moment of wonder at the complexity of the natural world.
Curtis was selected as one of the 100 artists included in New Glass Now, a global survey of contemporary glass at The Corning Museum of Glass that opened in May 2019.
