Anna Boothe

Zieglerville, PA

My glasswork is comprised of one-of-a-kind sculptural vessels, flacons, goblets and other decorative objects. Technical inspiration is taken from the late 19th C. French glass-casting technique known as pate de verre, a process that has its roots in antiquity and is defined by the heat fusing of small glass particles in molds. My objects are playful assemblages of colorful elements kiln-cast from lead crystal via the lost-wax casting process that are then ground, hand-polished and combined. Conceptually and visually, my works elicit a sense of history and ritual.
