The beautiful coloration of this glass sculpture recalls the teal and drake of a duck but the length and grace of the swan are unmistakable.
In this stunning glass sculpture a swan is contemplating flight. Ben Tullman has used the swan form several times in his glass sculptures. This beautiful coloration recalls the teal and drake of a duck but the length and grace of the swan are unmistakable. There is a depth and complexity to the colors. The white and clear murrini representing the tips of feathers, the undulating multiple layers of yellow and the overlapping swirls pull into the base. Contemplating Flight is truly a stand out work of art!
This is a very large piece with a heavy base, over three feet tall and 23 pounds. Like many swan form pieces the neck is rather thin and delicate. This piece has an unusually sculptural quality, with a enough glass at the top to form a distinct head.
Ben Tullman frequently uses striking colors and creative patterns in his fine art glass sculptures. Furthermore, he has mastered the creative and modern use of murrini and cane. Often, Tullman produces large scale glass sculptures made with exquisite patterns. However, Tullman’s glass artwork has a sense of whimsy that belies the complexity and control required.
