No one should throw rocks at glass houses but if one decides to do so and nobody is there – do you hear it shatter? Well, it is a given that glass is fragile and it requires specialized skill to create art with this material. Two artists showed their deft craftsmanship and delicate handling of glass as Ron Desmett and Kathleen Mulcahy had their opening last February 26th for Glass: A Delicate Balance. Mulcahy dazzled with her hot worked glass dripping like fat tears backed by a fabricated steel sheet. Desmett staged his variety of glass forms in well-balanced compositions. The allure and beauty of glass will always tantalize the beholder. However, be careful because if you break it, you’ll have to buy shards of it and scoop up your new acquisition in a dustpan.
