Steven Weinberg

Black and Blue Boat; USA, c. 2001; optical quality slump-cast crystal with cobalt, hand and machine polished; 7 h x 14.25 w x 3.5 d in (18 x 36 x 9 cm); This form was inspired by the cross-section of boat hulls seen by the artist in boat yards along the Rhode Island coast, where he'd moved in the early 2000s. The textured surface along the curved side was achieved with the "glue chipped" technique, which involves etching the glass then applying animal hide glue and allowing it to dry. The drying glue exerts pressure on the surface and chips off pieces of glass in a random pattern. Etched signature and number to lower edge 'Steven Weinberg 000406'.; Provenance: Private Collection

Sale Price: $4,688

Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000
