Video Interview with Glass Artist and GANM Board Member Lucy Lyon
Sculptor Lucy Lyon says she has always felt that, "even though we are all meeting up with each other and interacting in twos or threes or crowds, each of us is essentially alone. That brings up a bit of melancholy but it also makes the individual unique and therefore very important."
She found glass to be a very seductive material. Lucy Lyon focuses on sculpting figures. She is able to convey the intellectual and emotional state of the individuals in her glass sculptures by relying on her creation of subtle gestures, a turn of the head or twist of the hips, to express the figure's state of mind. Her larger works allowed her to capture even more nuances and emotions in her glass dramas.
Lucy has recently begun casting in metal in combination with glass. This is exciting to her but she will never stop enjoying the wonder of glass how glass "holds the light, like a soul."
