Michael PavlikCirculo Within and Without #VIII
This stunning and graphic handblown glass sculpture, entitled Circulo Within and Without #VIII" was realized by the esteemed 20th century artist, Michael Pavlik in 1991. It features two curved rectangular demilune forms with three frosted glass sides and a translucent exterior that meet at the center. Two volumetric triangular forms sit beneath the arc created by these demilune forms, which also have three clear sides and and one frosted. Within each of these triangular forms is an embedded rectangular color block- one in cerulean, and the other in a deep oceanic blue. Seen from various angles, these colors can appear diaphanous and hazy (when viewed through the frosted glass), or as glimpses of chromatic brilliance. Phenomenological, dynamic and sophisticated, this art work offers viewing pleasure that rewards sustained attention, continually offering new surprises and delights. With its refined palate and impeccable construction, it would be a showstopping sculpture in any interior, regardless of the style of decor. The sculpture comes presented on a custom swivel pedestal base. Excellent condition. Michael Pavlik received his earliest training in glass in his native country of Prague, Czech Republic where he received an MA in art and design from the College of Applied Arts. After emigrating to the United States, he studied at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina and later taught at Hartwick College in New York. In 1984, he was awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. His work is featured in many important private collections and instutions throughout the world, including the Smithsonian Institute of Art.
