An Amazing Early Bottle Glass Artist--Jason Pethick
I regularly read an artist blog called Olympia Dumpster Divers at http://rubyreusable.com and learned about this artist's work which is currently on exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. Jerry Pethick’s Le Semeur/Sunlight and Flies, 1984/2002 is made with (recycled) glass bottles, silicone, rubber corks, aluminum, and a surveillance mirror.
Born in 1935, Pethick passed away in 2003 from cancer. His work is affiliated with Catriona Jeffries Gallery in Vancouver, Canada.
