Angus M. Powers
Swayback Barn -orange glass

2015

About

Swayback Barn (orange) is inspired by barns in the rural upstate New York landscape. Angus Powers playfully exaggerates the animated poses that barns take on as they give in to gravity. The orange surface suggests the color of tractors, the texture suggests powder coated tools and adds to the character of the piece. Swayback Barn is a solid piece of cast glass. Its distorted bulges and sagging shape are evidence of the glass in its molten state. Angus Powers teaches at Alfred University in Alfred, New York. His studio practice demonstrates his easily sparked curiosity and willingness to experiment. He says this way of working helps him to be a better instructor for his students. Swayback Barn is signed "Angus Powers" on the bottom.
