Flowing Glass Inspired Beneath the Sea
K. William LeQuier creates stunning, free flowing glass sculptures by using a unique style he’s developed over more than a decade and a half. In the mid-70s he learned about glass blowing and for years he created glass vessels. Then, in the early 90s, he began to experiment with sandblasted surface designs, where he found he could carve glass into a myriad of textures using a sandblaster and a diamond saw.
Though labor-intensive, this work resulted in unexpected and exciting results that gave him a new direction to explore. While observing stacks of salvaged glass shelving, he realized he could make multi-layered constructions that looked like free flowing strands of carved glass. These pieces would be inspired by momentary events in nature like a wave crashing or a jellyfish swimming through the ocean.
