Casted Glass Skulls

Glass artist, Mike Eader of Seattle, WA is here with his glass skulls that he created by making a sand casting mold and hot glass that he pours into place. They measure 7 inches long by 4 inches wide. Some get sandblasted and some are adorned with copper nails.

Glass happens to be one of my favorite mediums to see, but sometimes it can be fragile and finicky, which makes it that much more impressive when done done right. These skulls look fairly solid and heavy and rock with their 3 dimensional features. The addition of the nails is a brutally awesome look. I do wonder what one could do by etching designs on the face of these. Infinite possibilities! Thanks for the great submission, Mike!
