Delicately Crafted Glass Sculptures by Robert Mickelson

Delicately Crafted Glass Sculptures by Robert Mickelson – Artist Robert Mickelson is an expert sculptor whose medium of choice happens to be glass. There’s something so pure and serene about glass. Perhaps it’s the material’s transparency coupled with its fragility.

With great precision and attention to details, he made sublime and fragile sculptures of objects with interesting shapes: woman bust woman, umbrella, Nerfertiti or a gramophone.

Mickelson’s work emulates objects just as well as the human form. Looking through his portfolio, I noticed that the artist appears to have a fascination with recreating various heavy-duty firearms, applying his signature mesh pattern.

He focuses purely on the transparent and fragile quality of his chosen material, accenting it by creating web-like versions of everyday objects. Robert Mickelson turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. In fact, it is almost as if a fairy touched each item, turning them into ethereal versions of their original state.

I think it’s equally fascinating as a viewer to take in not only the intricate detail of the “weapons” but the irony of the replicated tool’s purpose versus the sculpture’s physical strength. Glass can easily shatter, making them the most delicate guns I’ve ever seen.
