Creating work that is designed to disappear may seem a strange angle to take for a public display, yet that is exactly the intention of Steve Carr’s work First Light. The work consists of three different scientifically blown glass sculptures, which Steve has created and arranged to essentially, as he says “look like nothing”.
First Light includes glass sculptures of antlers, a replica fire extinguisher and a log stack, all designed by Steve and created through the heat intensive process of scientifically blowing glass. It is through this process that Steve draws his inspiration. While First Light may be purposely created to disappear, this is a work that deserves a closer look.
