This glass work of art by José Chardiet really captured my attention. I love the colors and the shapes are very unusual and captivating. I know this is nothing that I could even come close to doing myself, so I just admire these glass pieces. This glass piece was made by blowing glass and casting glass.
“Blue Etruscan Voyage”
“Mystic” was made by blowing glass and hot sculpting glass.
I saw these sculptures on the Hooks-Epstein Galleries website. The Hooks-Epstein Gallery website, http://www.hooksepsteingalleries.com, describes José Chardiet’s work. “José Chardiet designs and creates his glass sculptures by using blowing and casting processes. His ideas stem from various topics ranging from Spanish still-life painting to African Art. Chardiet’s goal is to create sculptures imbued with a spiritual and inner life.”

I was very impressed and wanted to share them with you. His glass sculptures are totally different than the fused glass that I make.
Here are some more of José Chardiet’s pieces on display:
“Circo” was made by blowing glass and casting glass.
“Homage Maria” was made by blowing glass and casting glass.
José Chardiet does several different series of art. “Richardson Bronze” is part of a series of glass teapots. He made these glass teapots by hot sculpting and sandblasting.

He also does different kinds of glass art by blowing glass, like “Snow Angels” and “Leather Squiggle.” He is very creative and artistic. Stay tuned for more…
