Elizabeth Dunlop

Glass & Metal Sculpture Artist

 

I have been creating art since I was a child. After 23 years, I decided to quit my full time teaching job to become a full time artist. At the time, my main focus was painting with watercolor on canvas. One day I started playing with patinas on copper, then decided to try working with glass.

After taking a fusing class in 2009, I knew I’d found a special medium that could be developed into my own style. I’d always loved abalone and opal as a child, and I wanted to work specifically with dichroic glass. My thoughts were that I’d make pendant-like glass pieces but bigger and mount them on copper and other metals to create wall hangings. I bought my first kiln that very day and never looked back! I love working with dichroic glass; it just takes my breath away! I love designing contemporary little masterpieces that sparkle and glow, knowing that at some point they will be joined with their backdrop, levels of metal and other materials.

Although the glass is the main focal point of my pieces, the metals I use are an integral part of my sculptures. I usually choose steel, copper and aluminum to compliment the glass. I use patina products and the Arizona sunshine to create the interesting textures and colors on some of my metals. Brass, bronze, cold-rolled steel, stained glass, granite and watercolor canvas are also sometimes used as a backdrop or accent. I love creating wall sculptures with as much dimension, color and depth as I can.

Texture, form, color, and energy are essential components in all my art. Each wall hanging is different and unique with its own special light characteristics and depth, and it’s difficult to photograph my pieces accurately. Most of my work has both a masculine and feminine feel, the masculine being the metals, the feminine being the glass.

I believe everyone should surround themselves with things they love in the places where they spend the most time. My intent and belief is that my sculptures create good energy, love, and light in the places where they’ll hang.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
