For "Strawberry," collaborating artists Joey Kirkpatrick and Flora Mace began with a slump of clear hot glass that they blew out on the blowpipe into a circular shape. When the glass came close to the desired shape, the artists then applied the colors. In Mace’s words, “The process we use when making the glass fruit and vegetable forms is unique. Our approach evolved out of our experience using the two-dimensional painting tradition. As in painting, we have learned to build layers of color by sifting colored crushed glass powders onto hot glass during the blowing process. It was exciting to find a method of “painting” onto three-dimensional blown glass, creating forms with a painterly surface of realistic color and textures.”
