Dan Taulbee, editor.
Stephen Powell, glass artist ; Steve Armstrong, automata artist.
Powell, a professor of art at Centre College in Danville, creates spectacular glass sculptures-vessels of fantastic, attention-grabbing shapes decked in flashing, vibrant color. His career in glass has developed around his own high-energy and performance-driven passion for art. Kentucky Muse visits him in his element, the fast-paced yet smoothly executed dance of creation in the glass studio he helped construct on Centre's campus.
Steve Armstrong's focus is on movement and interactivity between art work and viewer. His automata sculpture pieces combine an elegant sense of detail and design with imagination. Armstrong specializes in animated sculpture, or, as he puts it, "automata."
