Beth King

Mar 1995
4" Diameter x 18" Deep
Mixed Media, Glass

Blown glass, Steel Cable

Thrust is secured to the wall solely by tightening the cables. This is the first sculpture I made using this method of attachment. The application of tension to glass is now the most widely recognized signature of my work.

A larger, sandblasted variation of this sculpture is available for sale. The outward thrust of that cone is even more boldly accentuated by the white, luminous surface of the sandblasted glass.
