Fire Meets Water In Glass Sculptures By Emily Williams

Published 4 years ago

Fire! Glass! With their powers combined, Emily Williams makes sea life sculptures! Flame sculpting uses intense heat to shape glass, allowing for more varied shapes than regular glass blowing. And Williams is keen on making sculptures inspired by the sea. The see-through glass and the delicate shapes give the sculptures the dynamic fluidity of water, quite fitting for the subject matter.

Williams has been sculpting things for 30 years and has done glass work for 9 of them. In 2013, she started flame working glass, using her experience in welding. As for the subject matter, she is inspired by the nature trips she took with her family when she was young, her grandmother who worked at the Smithsonian, and her grandfather’s nature books. Her current glass sculptures aim to imitate the 19th century science book illustrations.
