Steve Heine — 2016 “Bluegrass Biennial” and 2016 “Gathering: Contemporary Glass from the Heartland” August 28 2016, 0 Comments

“Lucent Cloud” [2016], one of Steve’s “Cloud Panel” series, was selected for this summer’s 2016 “Bluegrass Biennial: A Kentucky Juried Exhibition” in Morehead, KY. An architectural glass panel composed of laser-cut steel, handblown sheet glass and poplar, “Lucent Cloud” received a Merit Award at the show.

Two of Steve’s other pieces—“Blue Wash” [2015] and “Beetle” [2014]—were recently selected for “Gathering: Contemporary Glass from the Heartland”, featuring “the best of emerging and established glass artists from Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Wisconsin—the heartland of America.” The show runs during the month of October at Ball State University in Muncie, IN. “Blue Wash” is from Steve’s “Cloud Panel” series. “Beetle” is a hollow-core vessel cast from recycled light bulbs. The wax positive for the glass was slowly turned on a wood lathe. The glass was then cast using the lost-wax process. The lid for the vessel was turned from ambrosia maple.
