Yesterday’s post was on a new form of lighted, translucent concrete. This led to an investigation of some concrete art . . .
Not sure how comfortable I would be with a massive, concrete ceiling over my head. It is pretty cool, though.
Andrew Goss is a concrete artist who writes a blog about his work and other interesting ideas. He is a Canadian jewelry designer, who works in concrete as well as metals. I wanted to feature this piece because I think of concrete sculpture being blocky and heavy, and I love the “twiggy” feel of this one. Visit his blog: artconcrete.blogspot.com
He also creates some beautiful wall mounted pieces. See the David Kaye Gallery in Toronto, “Lift – Some Ideas about Concrete”.
Gaspers is an artist working out of Port Townsend, Washington. She creates sculptures that are created from kiln-cast glass and concrete.
“Since I often think of glass as transparent stone or rocks, the “themes” of the pieces are in reference to fossils, or ancient walls that are carved with a story.” Rachel Josepher Gaspers
She also produces oil paintings, fiber art, and pastel paintings, in addition to the concrete & glass work. Visit her website here: www.rachelgaspers.com
