Popping up on a number of antique glass blog sites recently is new information (at least to me) on an artist and designer named Carlos Morales. He works and develops still life’s in glass which is right up my alley. Composition and a keen eye for detail is apparent in his work. Check him out and visit his web site.
A decade of collecting, reclaiming & decorating with glass artifacts: stained glass and antique bottles. Restaurants, homes, galleries and artisans’ fairs are venues where Carlos Morales has presented. Stained Glass Work & Glass Collection consists of discarded objects. Reclaimed glass and wood remind us of its beauty, function and history. Invoking a contemporary yearning in each of us to reclaim them as artifacts, reevaluate their significance and recreate for each – a New Context. The artist reclaims from Earth to decorate the World!
Carlos also posted this on the FOHBC Facebook page: “I am looking for broken, antique bottle pieces and/or old Coca Cola bottoms with raised lettering, (embossed) with U.S. Cities and/or States in many colors.Contact me. Carlos H. Morales @ Glassartiste”
