Lucio Bubacco

Symphony orchestra (part)

The very talented Italian artist Lucio Bubacco makes amazing coloured sculptures with glass. He uses the lampworking technique, which torches the flame and directing the heat source.

His pieces challenge our notion of lampwork as a primarily decorative and whimsical, stressing as they do form and plasticity, rather than detailed elaboration and/or narrative content presented as a mini-installation. Bubacco’s recent explorations with two dimensional inclusions in blown, solid off-hand and cast glass, burst forth into three dimensional glory, or are highlighted by cold working through and around the images, as he persists in his quest to create a living force in glass.

His gallery of works is composed by mythological and fantastic creatures, gods, demons, transgressive sculptures and carnival allegories. Some of those are NSFW. (via andreaxmas)
