Clear Glass Art Sculpture ‘The Head’ by Jan Falta
The Head, by Jan Falta is a beautiful unassuming clear glass art sculpture. Made from solid clear glass the outline of the face has been cast. Then through cold work, using a diamond edge disc the depth of the face is created.
The expression is also skillfully captured. The ripples of expression sit wonderfully upon the forehead. A half smile hides what the thoughts of this man maybe. Hours could be spent determining what they are.
Clear glass art sculpture requires precision and skill, all of which Jan Falta has in abundance.
NB These pieces come directly from the studio in Czech Republic. Please allow at least 5-7 working days for delivery.
