About Courtney Downman

My work combines the processes of glassblowing and cold-working, using both engraving wheels and the diamond saw to carve my blown glass forms.

 

My 'Carved' series begins with a blown glass form made by gathering and shaping the molten material. Once cooled the glass becomes rigid like stone. I delicately carve the blown glass to create a linear texture and raw edges. This series highlights glass’ ability to appear and act as both liquid and solid. The glass is formed as a liquid and then is carved when hardened. This duality allows me to use hot and cold processes to explore line and texture. The fluid bubble of glass slowly transitions into a rough and jagged edge. My work acts as a visual representation of this transition from liquid to solid; fluidity to rigidity, and strength to fragility.
