Fink Glass Works
There is no printing, photo emulsions or enameling on the glass. I can make the picture in different shades of black or brown or vary the contrast of the pictures, or if colored glass is used, the pictures will take on the colors of the glass itself. The pictures are seen when lit from behind. I also make two-sided glass where again, the pictures are seen when lit from behind; but in this case there are two distinctly different pictures on a single piece of glass. I made rotating display units that evenly rotate the two sided glass pictures. I am presently working on making white on black glass pictures, which also have a lot of interesting potential. I can also make and form pictures entirely of ashes that are sealed within melted glass.
The significance of my glasswork is that photography now extends into hot glassmaking. Glassmaking and photography are growing areas for collectible art.
My “HOT GLASS PHOTOGRAPHY” can be enjoyed by serious glass collectors and photo collectors alike. I can make one or two sided photo images on a single piece of glass made of nothing but glass that creates stationary or rotating photo glass artwork. I welcome commissioned custom projects where photo imagery and hot glassmaking become one. If the projects were large enough, I would work with other skilled glass artists to take this work to yet another level. I am also available to work with other Professional glass artists who want to merge our ideas into joint projects.
