“Nesting Ruffle Bowl” by Tim McFadden
McFadden’s process is highly intricate and varies according to which series he’s working on. His “Nesting Series” includes organic, flowing exterior vessels shaped by heating the glass as hot as possible and then using centrifugal force and gravity followed by minimal spinning to allow the piece to take shape. The interior pieces are shaped similarly, but on a smaller scale. McFadden chooses random, abstract shapes to make each piece unique. McFadden also creates single standing pieces including his “Large Waves” series, which are free-formed bowls with dynamic accentuated lines that display the versatility of glass. Similarly, his “Reticello” and “Murine” series are organic, tear-drop shaped vessels in which McFadden employs the Venetian cane technique to create patterns and striping on the surface.
