Cast Glass Sculpture Art ‘Cliff Edge’ by Crispian Heath
An exceptionally beautiful cast glass sculpture art ‘Cliff Edge’ made by the very talented Crispian Heath.
The brown colours combined with fiery amber really sets the piece off perfectly and each jagged bit of detailing delivers another layer of colours in this amazing masterpiece.
Crispian’s work is inspired by the landscape and how glass interacts with light, utilising the properties of transparency, refraction and reflection to create an inner world within an outer form.
This amazing cast glass sculpture art is perfectly balanced and will make a great accompaniment to any room of the house or office.
A great centrepiece wherever it stands!
Cast Glass Sculpture Art Artist
Crispian Heath was born in Cuckfield, England, in 1958. His early career was dedicated to the mechanical industry, his main trade being in motorbike restoration until the mid-1980s. Crispian then went on to make a radical change to his life, his first job in the glass industry taking him to the USA and to Boston Glass Arts Studio. On return to the UK, he worked in Devon. He then went on to further his studies in kiln craft at the University of Sunderland. In 2009 he established his own practice.
Crispian’s work has been displayed over the decades in both the UK and abroad, his work having been exhibited in the Netherlands as well as the US. He has won awards from Craft and Design Magazine and has also published his own literature on Art Glass. His most recent publication, from 2016, is entitled “Art Glass Today”.
Crispian’s focus today is on a unique contemporary art glass sculpture. His work is inspired by landscapes and the rugged cliffs and geological sites of Britain. He shares an intense connection with the play of natural light and the elements of the land, all of his sculptures interacting with light, transparency, and refraction. His sculptures are all one-off pieces, his private collections being found in both the UK and USA.
