Design drawing for prototype sculpture
Related to CMoG object: GL196.
Design drawing brought by Sís as inspiration for glass piece to be made at GlassLab. Drawing includes two birds side by side. Bird on left has flower in beak with head and wings pointing upwards; bird on right is decorated with comb on top of head and outstreched wings.
Sís collaborated with gaffer Chris Rochelle in June 2012 during his time at GlassLab at The Corning Museum of Glass. The glass object that resulted from this drawing is GL196, Hoopoe, a hollow bird-shaped sculputure with two applied wings and comb on top of head.
Sís is an illustrator, author, and filmmaker who was born in Brno, Czechoslovakia in 1949; he attended the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague and the Royal College of Art in London.
GlassLab provides an opportunity for designers and glassmakers to collaborate by using hot glass as a catalyst for innovation.
