Specialty Glass Residency with Albert Paley

Compelling discussion of how the materials and process - steel, glass, clay [or insert your personal love here] - bring your creative ideas smack dab up against reality. And that’s where the artist’s evolution begins.

“To me, exploration is primary,” says Albert Paley. “New materials open up new possibilities.”

The Corning Museum of Glass is collaborating with Corning Incorporated to provide a new Specialty Glass Residency, and the first artist selected for this unique collaboration is American sculptor Albert Paley.

Paley, who is best known for his large-scale works in metal, has chosen to work with two Corning glasses. In August, he began exploring furnace-working and casting of Corning Code 7056, a borosilicate glass that was engineered to bond tightly to a metal alloy called Kovar. Corning 7056 is used industrially in special electronic circuit packages that need the durability of the metal, and the transparency of glass, with a perfect, air-tight seal between the two. Over the course of the year-long residency, Paley will also investigate high-purity fused silica (HPFS). HPFS can be aggressively shaped and joined with a torch, similar to how Paley works metal.

So many colors to choose from.  Looking at possible ink colors for @burningbonespress to produce woodblock prints made from Albert’s drawings of the Paley Gate at the Naples Museum of Art.   #red #morered #pantone
