Ramon Orlina is the undisputed master of the medium of glass, and for decades, the master has been creating a body of work known for its ethereal beauty. In this work which Orlina created at the turn of the century, the viewer sees exquisite contrasts. For one, the base of the sculpture is geometric and features a frosted surface while the rest of the body has a curvilinear silhouette and is transparent. Its sea-green color is iconic Orlina, as well as the faceted surface that allows the light to permeate the entire sculpture, reflectingit back in a multiplicity of ways. When one inspects and moves around an Orlina sculpture, the planes shift and sparkle, which gives the impression that, despite the hardness of the artist’s choice of medium, his works are all about grace, fluidity, and movement.
