Richard Artschwager | Glass Drop

Richard Artschwager
Glass Drop
Self-published, 1969
10 × 4.5 × 3.25"
Edition of 12

A blown glass work produced in an edition of approximately twelve copies, each unique. The above copy is in the collection of the Walker Art Centre.

"You take your tube, dip the end of the tube into the glass and you get a gob there - it's still hot, it's still fluid, it's still plasma - and then you start to blow into that and turn it. You turn the pipe and you heat it up a little and you turn it a little more and then it's pretty well set up like a dumpling and then you cut it off and then it's an entity"
- Richard Artschwager
