White and Blue Tall Fish
VETRO II was an opportunity for Bruce to revisit his series titled Fish; exploring new forms and colourways. Using the Venetian technique, Incisio - which was first made popular by Carlo Scarpa in the 1940s when he was the artistic director for Venini - Bruce carves through layers of glass to reveal illuminating colours.
“My Fish series is a continued exploration into a Brancusi-style approach to sculpture, but with more detail in the surface treatment and use of colour. These pieces are made using colour overlays, then coldworking the surface of the glass to produce striking pattern and colour variations.” - Bruce Marks
