It is Fragile!

Glass sculpture by Robert Mikelsen (3)

Most of us have seen conventional glass art, and clearly Robert Mikelsen has taken a different direction with how to use this medium. His work is delicate and intricate.

P.S. Take a look at the vase within post. Do you see the optical illusion?

Notes about the artist (from bio):

Born in 1951 in Fort Belvoir , Virginia and raised in Honolulu , Hawaii , Robert’s formal education ended after one year of college. He apprenticed with a professional lampworker for two years in the mid-seventies and then sold his own designs at outdoor craft fairs for ten years. In 1987 he took a class from Paul Stankard that opened his eyes to the possibilities of his medium. In 1989, he stopped doing craft shows and began marketing his work exclusively through galleries. Since then, his career has taken off.
