Sean Goddard InsectsBNW Spring Show 2019/ Sculpture
Simply put, I make my insect pieces from glass and metal. In greater description, there is variations of tecnique for different pieces. Generally, I fuse glass, often dichriocs with frit and powders, then kiln form these parts to make insect components. I combine these components with sheet copper, tubing and copper rod, both internally for structural strength and sculptural detail. Together I try to create realistic forms with detail that would be recognizable if viewed in nature. Though I often take full license on the colors I choose.
