“In my work, I strive to capture a singular moment in time—something that, if you look again a second later, will be gone. While often abstract in nature, my work is still very much based on an image—most often an image in nature—that is fleeting and ephemeral. Capturing that moment, no matter how literal or abstract the result may be, marks that singular moment as something to be cherished.” – Denise Bohart Brown
Inspired by the natural world both in the Colorado mountains that she calls home and in her travels around the US and beyond, Denise Bohart Brown’s kiln-fired glass creations cover a range from residential-sized wall and tabletop sculptures down to smaller gift-sized pieces. No matter the size, each and every creation is hand-cut and pieced together. The technical aspects of her creative process—the number and temperature of kiln firings, the timing of the addition of glass—combine with the design to achieve the end result: a contemporary art piece that stimulates the senses and inspires the mind.
