Flight Take Off 2010 – Geoffrey Mann

This was the first time I had seen a solid glass sculpture on this scale. In researching this piece I found out a lot about how it was made and how glass can be fired. I initially wondered why the work had two very flat ends of polished glass, and then I noticed the shape of the bird formed at each end. It was preparing for flight at the start and with wings outstretched at the end.

I found it a remarkable piece of art.
