Sculptor Christina Bothwell

"Swept Off My Feet" is a current wonder by Sculptor Christina Bothwell, who works primarily in kiln cast glass, often with raku ceramic or mixed-media. Examples of her beautiful yet strange, compelling work can be found on her site, as well as on various galleries and the Web.

Judy Hill and Gary Curtis also sometimes mix glass and Raku ceramic.

Kiln cast glass is a special process.
Raku firing is a "a 16th century process that was used in the Orient to make very special cups for the sacred tea ceremony."

When judging art, each time a baby is used as the subject an alarm goes off.

Consequently, there is now a roar in my head.

/Somewhat interesting use of materials (poor man's bronze?), but the sculptures themselves are terribly banal

Compared with most glasswork I've seen lately, and I've seen a lot being this close to the Chiluly epicenter, her work is very expressive and many pieces are technically very good. I like how she uses some of the crudeness of the process that would usually be eliminated and I admit I like her freaky style.
