`Hot Kilns, Cool Glass'


March 09, 2006|By SAM SESSA

Kiln-formed glass, a fairly new and uncommon fine art form to the city, is the subject of Resurgam Gallery's exhibit Hot Kilns, Cool Glass: Contemporary Glass Sculpture in Baltimore.

Artists Frances Aubrey and Elizabeth O'Hara assembled glass pieces, then melted and cooled them in a computer-controlled kiln. O'Hara also used other ingredients such as clay in her works, Aubrey said. Kiln-formed glass emerged as a type of fine art about 25 years ago, Aubrey said.

"It's such a new medium we haven't exhausted all the possibilities yet," she said.

Hot Kilns, Cool Glass: Contemporary Glass Sculpture In Baltimore runs through March 26. There will be an artists' presentation titled Contemporary Techniques of Kiln-Formed Glass at 1 p.m. March 19. The gallery is at 910 S. Charles St. Hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call 410-962-0513 or visit resurgamgallery.com.
