Four Seasons

“When the artist lifts his blowpipe, he must be prepared to intervene with all his aptitude, training, form-sense, as well as physical and mental energy. Everything he knows converges at once on this curious scene reenacted millions of times in human history: a man breathing his desire into the molten glass.” Harvey Littleton, Glass Magazine, 199
Four Seasons is part of a group of work known as “eye” cups. Harvey Littleton encases thin layers of color within thick glass to form four sets of concentric circles, each representing a different season. Each piece has been made separately and can be moved around to create unusual color combinations and oblique angles
