I went to see Preston Singletary‘s glass exhibit, Raven and the Box of Daylight”, at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. His work takes Tinglit symbolism and art and does them in glass with some with mixed media. He found his “niche” after years of experimentation with realist and abstract glass forms. His work is breathtaking in its form and beauty. To do work in glass is quite technical and expensive, and beyond my grasp at this point in my life. BUT, I can make something look like glass digitally.
I took inspiration from his work and made Taino symbols into glass sculptures digitally. Below are a few of my digital experiments.
