Steve Maslach

“I am drawn to forms that exist as a result of purpose. The human body, the vessel and the boat take shape from the result of use, of efficiency, and of grace. I involve myself, as an artist, with the representation and evolution of these forms. Sculpture exists in reality; in space and dimension, and can convey meanings and experiences beyond words. Our memories and responses are invoked by the validity of forms that involve us, delight us, and touch our humanity.”

Steve Maslach has worked in glass for 36 years. His work was derived from the circular vessel forms of the blowpipe. The shapes of containers, graceful and pleasing, are deeply familiar to all of us and have a power derived from long history and use. For the past several years he has developed a refined approach to making glass sculpture, direct from molten glass.
