|Description: The quizzical and metaphysical sculpture of David Schwarz reflects his exploration of illusory space using blown glass. His clear solid forms with their faceted surfaces act as a lens that bends and distorts shape and light. Schwarz sandblasts the glass with color and architectonic forms that seem to float in and out, turning the sculptures into larger than life gems. The viewer is drawn into these enigmatic pieces by their rich and varied patterns and mesmerized by the optical play.|
Selected exhibitions of David Schwarz's sculpture include Hot & Cool: Contemporary Glass Works, Tyler Museum of Art, Texas, traveling exhibition, The White House Collection of American Crafts, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California, traveling exhibition, and the San Francisco Craft and Folk Art Museum.
