Lens With Opaline and Black Reticello

Art Glass Sculpture

Created by Marc Carmen
A contemporary take on the centuries old reticello technique, these heavy pieces of crystal feature concentric layers of fine glass threads, creating a three dimensional mandala with striking optical qualities. The composition draws the eye to the center of the piece where a complete void is created by a small bubble. This absence of color, pattern, and material contrasts with the intricate line work through the lens.

After the hot-working process, the piece is then ground to a perfect biconvex shape using telescope lens making techniques. The surface is then buffed to an optical quality polish. Stand is included.
