Hirsch - Rogers Figure Sculpture, 2007
“Figure Sculpture” by contemporary American ceramic artist Richard Hirsch and glass artist Michael Rogers was created in 2007. This sculpture is comprised of a cast glass head and a raku patinaed ceramic masher encapsulated in clear blown glass with a ceramic bottom resting on a separate ceramic base. The following text is an excerpt from an article that was published in Ceramics: Art and Perception, 2008 written by Scott Meyer about their collaborative work; “It is of no small importance that the artists share a “craft medium” heritage. Both clay and glass have their roots in utility and place high value on process and careful manipulation. The grace with which parts make up the whole is fundamental to the production of art in craft media. Further, the fabrication of work in clay and glass historically has involved more than one solitary artist. Furnaces, kilns, and the sheer physicality of the material often foster the formulation of teams gathered around common production goals. While a climate of mutual regard and shared ideas in a creative process is not the sole province of craft media, these qualities are essential for collaborative work.” All works by Richard Hirsch and Michael Rogers are accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity from the artists.
