New Orleans glassblower Mark Rosenbaum of Rosetree Glass presents his stunning portfolio. Enjoy his work and visit his website from more from this artist.
My blown glass art is a dialogue between artist and material. I am influenced by the molten glass and what our interactions will bring.
I don’t keep a formal sketchbook as some artists do. Instead, I do my “sketching” and prep work in front of a 2000 degree furnace.
In my medium, it is much easier for me to have the immediacy of the artwork develop in front of my eyes.
I enjoy the controlled spontaneity that my media affords me.
I have included some iconic imagery of Mardi Gras, Second Line Parades, Mardi Gras Indians, and musicians in my pieces.
The relationship between me, my city, and my art, brings me a renewed satisfaction.
