About

The Thaw Collection utilizes crushed and powdered glass to capture the form, tones and textures of glaciers. Several pieces from the Collection are cast layer-by-layer in molds hand-carved in the spirit of naturally rough, weather-hewn forms. Others combine geometric forms and smooth surfaces with glass aggregate, adding a sense of tactile realism, revealing a natural alchemy of materials. The Mirror represents one of five pieces from the Thaw Collection.

Custom commissions are available, please inquire with the studio.

About the Maker

Fernando Mastrangelo uses atypically commonplace materials – such as salt, coffee, sand, glass and cement – to cast sculptural objects that inextricably entangle fine art and design disciplines. Amalgamating commodity materials and pure geometric form, the works are intriguingly contradictory; they are both rugged and refined, durable and delicate, formal and functional. Precisely because of their hybrid natures, each work shatters the potential for contextual singularity. Instead, these free-standing and wall-hanging sculptural pieces resonate across a panoramic, multidisciplinary spectrum – spanning formal, social, historical, mathematical, and even religious subject matters. Mastrangelo enlists an unrelentingly fastidious fabrication process to achieve these liminal harmonies, through which he is able to expand our experience of everyday materials, granting them an otherwise unnoticed cutting-edge, sophisticated minimalism.
