Round Red Glass Sculpture ‘Blood Moon’ by Karen Ehart

This bold round red glass sculpture by Karen Ehart is inspired by the natural phenomena of a ‘Blood Moon’, a term to describe a total lunar eclipse where the moon takes on a reddish hue.  It certainly has an ‘otherwordly’ air to it!

The rounded edges and flat shape captivates the eye and captures and reflects all available light whether inside or in natural light.

Position this magnificent piece of glass art on a  window sill, side table or mantelpiece – anywhere it can be admired every day and at its fullest.

Available in two sizes:
Large:  approx 17.5 inches (45cm) diameter. The large stand bases are 5 x 12 inches. The glass and stand together measures 21x 18 ”

N.B. The images shown are an example of the ones in the series. Each piece is handmade and therefore there will be small variations in colour and pattern. Each one is unique and signed by the artist.

Round Red Glass Sculpture Artist

Karen Ehart’s work involves several different processes depending on the shape of the final product. Some of Karen’s pieces are more three-dimensional than others. She begins one of these pieces by making an original sculpture. She will create a shell-like mould over that sculpture which she will use to shape her glass on. The mould-making process is an art form in itself and requires much trial and error.

She will then craft the design elements she will use. She cuts, fires, torches and smashes pieces of glass, using a variety of techniques to create the parts that will make up the composition.

Karen experiments with the glass pieces in various configurations until she finds the right look for her design.

The glass sculpture takes shape during the second firing. Gold details are then painted on and it is returned to the kiln, this time over the mould she has fabricated if it is a dimensional piece. Some pieces even require additional firings.

A regimen of heating and cooling very slowly must be followed for all firings – a process is known as annealing – taking place over a period of several days.

Karen’s round red glass sculpture is the result of many hours of patient experimentation. Each piece is a highly collectable original.

Karen Ehart’s art glass pieces are found in collections around the world. Her craftsmanship is ever-evolving as she continues to experiment with the endless possibilities for expression that glasswork offers.
