What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Color Play



Heike Brachlow

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.

  1. Interesting but just not for me. I guess for the first time I looked at “Liquid Glass’ and fell in love. Happy to be back everything went well. Doctor said full recovery in 4 to 6 months. Until then I get to learn how to live life in a wheel chair. — Hal

  2. Love these! A little part of me wants to work in glass, but a bigger part of me recognizes I’m sooooo clumsy.

  3. These are gorgeous. I cannot decide whether I prefer the stacked geometric shapes or those twisting pieces that make me think of MC Escher art works. So I will just have to have both. Or all. That’s another display case in our imaginary glass collection sorted then.
