Mixed Media Sculpture of Rik Allen

Blown Glass & Mixed Media Sculpture of Rik Allen.

Rik Allen’s mixed media pieces with blown glass and recycled metal arrive in the form of rockets and tornados.  His spacecraft series as well as the samurai/cyclone series give a feel of grecian urns and 2oth century science fiction martian craft.

"Flurbian Seeker", 2009, Blown Glass, Silver, Steel, 9" X 14" X 5.5"

Allen’s sculpures feel neither new nor old, but simultaneously ancient and future — forever enduring– and reminiscent of a time before the Age of Plastics when objects were built to last decades, centuries, and perhaps millennia”
