These large sculptures by Brian Russell show his continuing interest in exploring the marriage of forged metals and cast crystal glass. He has been persistent about experimenting with color, and the possibilities of shaping the glass. These works are currently available and soon will be listed on the gallery website.
Brian produces works for both interiors and outdoor display, on a residential and corporate scale. He draws inspiration from nature, ancient artifacts, mathematics, science and, ultimately, his imagination.
In addition to studio works, commissions are an integral part of Brian’s artistic mission. He describes them as a challenging aspect of being a professional artist: maintaining the integrity of the work while meeting the goals of those commissioning a site specific sculpture, working to budget, timelines, architectural standards, review committees and public criticism. Brian has more than 20 years of experience producing an extensive range of custom items. He continues to create sculpture for public and private enviroments around the country,
