This wonderfully free-form glass sculpture by glass artist Brad Abrams measures 6" x 4" x 4". It is etched "Brad Abrams" "95", and weighs approximately 2.5 lbs. and is composed of clear glass with a protruding yellow glass "horn". This strikingly modern piece can rest on several sides; each angle is beautiful and meditative, yet dynamic. Viewed from any angle this expressive piece radiates energy and style, and is in excellent condition with no chips, scratches or defects. It is rare to find a Abrams, and this piece is from a relatively early period of his production.
Born in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1965, Abrams received his formal education at the California College of the Arts, studying under Marvin Lipofsky. He was further influenced under the tutelage of the late American ceramicist, Viola Frey (1933-2004). Her guidance is seen in Mr. Abrams work to this day. Both mentors, in addition to being raised by an artisan mother and a metallurgist father, appeared to have been major influences on Abrams' thought processes as well as his inventiveness in choosing glass as a material for his artistic expression.
