I’m republishing some of the most popular blog posts from 2011.

We’ve talked about them before…those “gasp” moments. When you have one, you know you are looking at something special. I had one of those moments last week.
Nikolas Weinstein is an artisan creating glass sculptures out of his studio in San Francisco. His most recent installation is definitely “gasp” worthy.
The triptych sculpture is descended from 3 skylights inside San Francisco tavern, Bar Agricole. The billowing sculpture is created with glass tubing that is woven together and then heated and formed in a custom kiln. The results of this process are glass panels that look just like “fabric” blowing in the wind.

Pretty cool stuff, huh?
I’ve written a blog post over at the GLASS Quarterly Hot Sheet detailing the fabrication and installation of this glass “fabric.” You don’t want to miss it.
