K. William LeQuier
"My experimentation with varying depths of carving combined with different resist materials yielded unexpected and exciting results and gave me new directions to explore." Inspired by the diversity in form and color of undersea creatures, many of these works were reminiscent of sea urchins, sponges, anemones and their environments.
LeQuier's appreciation of the strength and serendipity of nature has moved his work in a new direction. While observing stacks of salvaged glass shelving, he began to think of a different way to work with glass. He saw the raw material for a series of sculptures that were multi-layered constructions. Inspired by quickly rendered sketches, LeQuier is able to transform a mundane material to organic forms conveying movement and emotion.
Free flowing strands of carved glass are laminated with other layers to create depth and a complexity of intersecting lines. These sculptures of fluid motion vividly represent a momentary event in nature.
