Martinez’s crystal clear glass sculptures are inspired by perceptions of reality. The artist is red-green colorblind and his deficit in color vision drove him to manipulate hot sculpted glass into the illusion of a water bag. The trapped movement of the rising bubbles and the gesture of the forms convince the eye that the sculptures appear as plastic bags of water.

Martinez's crystal clear sculpture is both hollow and solid H2O/SiO2 hot sculpted glass which is hand molded entirely by the artist. This three-dimensional sculpture measures 11.75 inches high by 6.5 inches wide and has a depth of 4 inches. It is signed at the bottom by the artist. This sculpture can be placed on any flat surface. Free delivery in the local Los Angeles area. Affordable Continental U.S. and International shipping are available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.

In regards to his work, the artist states: “Our vision has the greatest effect on our understanding of the world. What is fascinating is that our desires often override our true perception of reality and you believe what you think is visible as the truth. ”

Dylan Martinez was born in 1985 in Wisconsin. Most recently he has completed a one-month residency in Murano, Italy, a region famous for high-quality artisan glass. Martinez’s sculptures are sought after internationally and his work has been exhibited in the USA, Italy, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, as well as Taiwan. His work has been included in several notable publications, including Interior Design Magazine, American Craft Magazine, and Aesthetica Magazine.
