These “Mechanical Drawings” are from an ongoing series of sculptures made from towering bunches of thin-sliced glass buttressed with steel. They were originally conceived of as three-dimensional drawings with the gold or bronze elements midway acting as the marks, creating planes or lines in space. The interference they cause in the glass produces the tension that creates the sculptural form as a whole: the glass of course, allowing one to see through to the “drawing” suspended inside.
