About

Sculpting with hot glass, both solid and blown forms, Richard Jolley assembles fragments of a narrative: a female torso, a bird in flight, a baseball-capped fellow with a sphere or vase. Jolley’s figures, which are infused with a Pop Art sensibility, are sometimes cartoon like in their exaggeration and undeniably pretty with their translucent purples, yellows, and cobalt blues. Over the course of his career, Jolley has produced a remarkable body of sculpture that explores the human figure, its timeless beauty, and expressive potential. His signature elements - heads, busts, torsos, and animals – captivate the eye with rich colors, sensuality, irony and unique textures. His development of modeling hot glass, a process that has become his trademark, has fueled his reputation, producing pieces that are liquid and lush. Jolley has stated, “The ideal is to transcend technology with the statement, to move beyond the materials and the process. What I am trying to do is achieve humanistic art.” Jolley’s intent is to maintain a path of exploration that seeks to balance the modern and the traditional, the creative and the technological in his exploration of the human narrative.
