Artist in residence at the Paul King Foundry of fine art sculpture before focusing her art on creating one-of-a-kind glass sculptural pieces though the unusual method of sandblasting. Wendy Saxon-Brown attended the Washington University, St. Louis, MO from 1972-73 and received her BFA in Sculpture at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1976.She studied traditional Brush Painting with Sun Chen in Shia Lee, Tawian from 1975-78. And was an artist in residence at Paul King Foundry. Wendy Saxon-Brown taught Chinese brush painting from 1978-80 at Phoenicia Art Forge, Phoenicia, NY. I began sandblasting glass in 1982. It is a process that allows me to use my sculptural and design skills.
I love drawing from life. The drawings are usually incorporated into designs that will be sandblasted in glass. The sculptures are cast in glass. By sandblasting I mean aiming an abrasive at high pressure at the glass which erodes the glass away. This is an indirect process, meaning that the image is first cut into a 1/8 thick rubber stencil that is attached to the glass.
This behaves as a'frisket' that controls where the abrasive can cut at any particular time. This item is in the category "Art\Art Sculptures". The seller is "n0007917" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
