Drew Hine Casts a Little Glass

These shots show good old Drew Hine and crew sand-casting several large glass elements in a variety of specific colors.  What will the pieces be used for?  Matt Kirby’s 18′ sculpture for the City of OP, the model for which is shown below.

This is the same monumental sculpture I’ve been discussing off and on over the summer, and that will be dedicated in OP next month.  Bringing something like this together is always far more complicated than it appears–which in a sense is what you want.  I still can’t discuss what it’s about and who it’s in honor of, but all things in due time.

Here also is some video of Drew casting on You Tube.
