The Sculpture Art of Chris Williams

A piece of metal, a piece of glass, and a piece of stone walk into an artist's studio...


Hi Friends,

 

It's been awhile since I shared another artist with you here, so today I wanted to introduce you to the sculptural work of Chris Williams.

I love the distinctive combination of glass, metal, and (often) stone in his pieces. It's amazing that he's able to make some of the heaviest materials seem like they're floating.

 

 Of course I'm partial to his sea creatures (for those of you who don't know, my favorite animal is the octopus!):

But all of his creations are alive with character and poise. He says,

"My mission is to put a life force in the art that looks back at you. There’s magic to be found. And when it’s discovered, I know why I’ve made the journey."


The job of a sculpture is to fill a space with motion and interest. This is accomplished in each of Chris' pieces and installations--whether animal, architectural element, or furniture piece. The glass, metal, and stone together create unique effects and a distinctive look that any one of the mediums on its own would not be able to achieve.

Check out more of his work on his website, https://www.chriswilliamssculpture.com/ . And if you're lucky, you might also see pieces of his in a public space or business! I discovered him when I saw this amazing seascape installation at the Boston Logan International Airport:

A quick reminder before I go! If you enjoy learning about new artists like this, as well as other inspirational and useful creative content for each season, I have a quarterly online lifestyle magazine for just that!

 

The Winter 2024 Issue just came out, and I'm super excited about everything I was able to share there. I think my favorite feature this time is an article about how to use a simple, easily-accessible mental tool that is "one of the essential elements of the creative process across history."
