Billy James Crellin

Balloon sculpting is a playful art realizing the potential of air coupled with a membrane to yank, squeeze and bow a given shape. Blown from glass, each of the sculptures in this series mimic those actions in an effort to yield close attention from details in each of the contortions and textures emerging from the material performance. The immediacy of the actions is revealed dynamic through application of colour rod glass, acrylics, and enamels.
