I know I’ve been featuring a lot of nature-inspired artists lately, but I have a wonderful case of spring fever, and I can’t seem to help myself.
In keeping with my accidental nature theme, I am thrilled to bring to you today Jason Gamrath‘s massive blown-glass-and-steel flowers. The amount of detail and the sheer mass of these pieces is really mind-blowing. Gamrath is inspired to recreate botanical forms on a grand scale to remind us to pay attention to the small beauties in our lives.
“The most beautiful, extravagant man-made object could never creatively equal the simplest and smallest naturally occurring life form. The purpose of creating this series on a macro scale is to bring to light the beauty that exists within the micro scale of nature.”
The Seattle-based artist’s work can be appreciated in person starting on May 6, 2017s at the Philipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh, PA, at his exhibit SUPER. NATURAL.
