If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know how much I love, love, LOVE glass art. It’s something of an obsession for me. Today’s artist checks that box in a big way. Heike Brachlow studied “color, form, and light in solid transparent glass” at the Royal College of Art in London, from whence she got her Ph.D. She’s so into color, in fact, that she began making her own colored glass because she was frustrated with the limited glass color options available.
Inspired by architecture, geometry, and human interaction, Brachlow’s work has a fragility to it. Many of the pieces look like they could collapse at any moment, much like some interpersonal relationships.
You can follow Brachlow on her website.
