Wells Gallery in Charleston, SC, Offers Works by David Goldhagen
The Wells Gallery in Charleston, SC, is pleased to present Artistry in Glass, a new body of work by artist David Goldhagen. The exhibit opens on Oct. 3 and continues through Oct., 2003.
Using traditional glassblowing methods thousands
of years old, Goldhagen creates the work of art at the end of
a blowpipe. Each piece is individually blown without the
use of molds. Goldhagen uses wide swifts of brightly colored glass, adding flecks of super brilliant goldstone trapped in clear crystal.
The power of Goldhagen's visual imagery compliments
the unusual master technique required to create his larger pieces.
His platters and pods are extremely difficult forms to achieve
in hand-blown glass. Working with 10 to 15 pounds of glass at
the end of a five foot blowpipe, Goldhagen begins each piece as
a bubble which glows at temperatures of 2000 degrees and above.
From his hand blown lamps to his platters that are 40" in diameter, Goldhagen's talent is astounding. Each piece of glass is the only one of its kind and unique to Goldhagen's style.
