Artist Statement

"When people first view my work, I’m often told they feel a “certain aliveness” inherent in the work itself. My goal as an artist is to inject life into whatever I can make. In simple terms to make the piece come alive. 

Each piece is hand cast from molten glass in a spectacular process of heat and light. The energy of this “Dangerous Dance of Creation” reflects in the finished work.

In the end, the work has a quality of timelessness reflecting both ancient and modern. They celebrate the unique properties of glass, of transparency, and shine and reflection. And because these are cast objects, they hold in their form the memory of the shapes and textures of the materials that formed them;
they are fine-grained, rugged or smooth, transparent or translucent, colored or clear. 

When I cast the sculptures I include in them relics of modern life, interesting objects that have been cast away, industrial waste items that seem to unite present and past. In the end, the completed piece transcends the sensibility of mere time.

The glass immortalizes a glimpse of something fleeting beyond the moment, taking that moment and freezing it over. 

I call these pieces Evocators. They are kept moments, shards of what I have seen, unnamed emotions, visions, concepts, memories. They call back; and they are the vehicle on which a viewers vision can ride away.

The glass is there only to see through."

About the Artist

Marlene Rose is an internationally known award-winning sculptor who produces stunningly beautiful works of art in her chosen medium, sand-cast glass.

Seen in museums and galleries across the US and Europe, her works are sought by glass connoisseurs, fine art collectors and Hollywood A-list celebrities.

Each piece is hand cast from molten glass into an unique modern work of art that resonates with references and allusions to ancient cultures and civilizations.

About the Process

While the process Rose uses is relatively new, having been developed in the mid-80s, it is based on the ancient tradition of bronze casting. Rose pours liquid molten glass into carefully prepared sand molds, then cools it for six days or more in a specially controlled oven before cracking open the mold to see what is revealed.

There is a rawness and immediacy to working the sand of the mold, and the thrill and the danger of pouring this magical lava, thousands of degrees hot. There is the patient gestation of the work in the cooling oven.

Then at last there is the joy of meeting the product of sand, glass, fire and thought, as the piece is finally bought out into the light.

Marlene Rose quite simply breathes life and beauty to whatever she makes.
