We Are Excited & Proud to Debut
“The Song Series” by Jose Chardiet
Master glass artist Jose Chardiet has been creating a variety of sculptural forms drawn from a diverse range of topics for over 40 years. In “THE SONG SERIES”, inspired by his interest in Chinese Ceramics, his efforts take on a bold new form.
“In particular, I was drawn to the exquisite cups and stands (bowls) of the Northern Song Dynasty (11th-12th century). These everyday objects, used for drinking tea, consisted of two thrown ceramic forms stacked one on the other. They were very small, no more than 4.5” tall x 4.5” wide, but to me they were sculptural. I was struck by the perfect proportions and shapes. I became interested in the idea of stacking forms, but in my chosen medium of blown glass, and saw this as an interesting starting point for new artistic exploration.”
Completed in late 2021 during a five day experience at the Museum of Glass, the collection is on display and available now at Raven Gallery through spring of 2022.
While the pandemic has changed a lot in the world, thankfully the expression of human creative skill and imagination remains alive and well and on display at Raven Gallery. Whether you crave craft born from mortal hands or the solidity of earth formed art, you will find it here.
Although we look forward to welcoming you to the gallery, we know that showing up in person may not be possible for everyone. If that means you, we have options available to accommodate your needs…
