Geoscience Lava Series
artist: Sally Pennington Moore
To the artist making these is similar to watching lava flow and the temperatures are about the same! Thus the name of her original piece in this series, Blue Magma.
The lava series is all about letting colors flow and run while hot and then sculpting the piece into the desired form. Each piece has one focus color and some dichroic added to it to give that sparkle effect.
Glass artist, Sally Pennington Moore is also a woman of science. She has a master’s in Economic Geology and worked as a geoscientist for 35 years before starting glass making. Therefore a lot of her work is influenced by her geologic past.
