A Glass of Bubbly

The irresistible allure of popping bubble wrap is captured in Chris Taylor's playful glasses that pop with a tempting texture. The artist exploits glass's knack for disguise by rendering the material into intricate glasses with the billowy surface and unique indentations that characterize the real thing. Liven up your next dinner party by inviting guests to get all wrapped up in the glasses' compelling, trompe-l'oeil charms. Hand-blown in Riverside, Rhode Island.

Chris Taylor aspires to expand his audience, allowing his viewers to indulge in the tactile nature of these objects outside of an art context. Sculptures are transformed into fuctional objects that can be experienced physcially in the everyday. Taylor began close-copying readymade objects such as bubblewrap, styrofoam, soap, plastic, and paper in glass over twenty years ago. These objects combine his interests in subversion, irony and humor with beauty, elegance, and a reverence for the tradition of glassmaking. Taylor’s work transforms the daily conventional experience with things into a sculptural and performative art interaction.
