George Whitney In The Studio

"All of the work on a piece is done in my studio. From the creation of the wax model to the preparation of the casting mould, the polishing and the packing are all performed inhouse. This allows me to control all aspects of the production of my work."

More About George Whitney

IconInspires

What inspires you?

I am drawn to abstract, geometric sculpture, the volume of it, the form, the textures. Shape is all around us, surrounding every aspect of our lives. Working with the shapes that I find, I adapt them, combining elements of multiple forms and unrelated textures, to arrive at a final destination.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

With glass, light is the biggest consideration. How will the light work with and add to the finished piece. It is the most important consideration. Glass, unlike other media, is transparent, so it is important to consider how all of the surfaces will work together.
