Nada Kesic Freedom To Be Glass Sculpture

Nada Kesic – Glass Artist

Artist Statement:

My passion for art is a mirror of the evolving journey of myself as a painter, sculptor, ceramicist, poet and now the glass artist I am today. Glass amazes me, has captured me with its chameleon-like nature from static form to molten liquid and at the end a constant surprise of melded colours, captured bubbles and shifting shadows of translucence creating dynamic ethereal works of art. Kiln fused, slumped and cast sculptural forms. Since the 1970’s I have created sculptures in various mediums – bronze, clay, wood and now casting in glass. I want to explore and push the boundaries of what is and isn’t possible and to find my place within the bounds dictated by this medium.
