BRENNAN KASPERZAK •

$7,000

Blurred Lines 15 x 57 x 10 ½ in. 2018 Blown, fused, slumped glass, wood

Growing up in the flatlands of Toledo, Ohio, Brennan Kasperzak developed a fascination for mountains and snow during family trips. He began his glass career in 2002, going on to receive a BFA in Glass from Ohio State University in 2007. Since then, he has studied, assisted, and taught internationally; working with artists Therman Statom, Chuck Lopez, and Davide Salvadore, among others. Kasperzak’s current body of work combines his most driving passions: mountains and glass, and involves the creation of life-sized glass snowboards. In removing the functionality of the snowboard by creating it in glass, Kasperzak allows the snowboard to become his canvas, and the sculptural object acts as a vessel for his voice rather than his body. He was a finalist in Emerge 2018 hosted by Bullseye Projects. B R E N N A N K A S P E R Z A K . C O M
