|AP 95.05 (2005), BY JOSH SIMPSON|
ACQUIRED FROM THE ARTIST, SHELBURNE FALLS, MASSACHUSETTS, FEBRUARY 2005
MULTI-LAYERED HOTWORKED GLASS AND SILVER REACTIVE GLASS WITH GOLD FOIL AND GLASS CANE INCLUSIONS
This small planet (not quite 3" in diameter) is quite similar to my Inhabited Planet. It came with a separate sample of the cane used to create the small blue-and-red "spaceship" that's flying above the surface of the planet, as well as a copy of the book Made by Hand: Art and Craft in the Heartland of New England, which includes a chapter about Josh's work. "AP" stands for "Artist's Proof"... as far as I can tell, Josh produced about 100 or so of these small works in early 2005.
I really like the color configuration (blues and greens) of this work... as always, Josh continues to amaze.
