Description 'Halcyon', contemporary glass sculpture by Heike Brachlow
British, 2020
Height 29cm, width 35.5cm, depth 44.5cm
Created from solid cast glass, Heike Brachlow’s intriguing sculpture Halycon is based on a concept called D-form, a three-dimensional form created by joining the edges of two flat shapes with the same perimeter length. Brachlow has been exploring these shapes since 2015, furthering her interest in using casting techniques to express geometric forms in glass.
Using coloured glass of different thicknesses, she aims to create a colour fade to almost nothing along the edges. The resulting sculpture appears both solid and weightless at the same time. Its abstract form is concerned with movement and transformation, highlighting the radiance of transparent colours when light shines through the glass. Under different sources of light, Halycon appears as a completely different object, its stunning luminosity piquing the viewer’s curiosity.
Artist/maker Heike Brachlow (German, b. 1970)
