MISTER GLASS

art blog - Robert Mickelson - empty kingdom

And no…I’m not talking about Samuel L. Jackson as Mr. Glass from the film “Unbreakable”…

Robert Mickelson masterfully creates detailed replicas of firearms (in the case of today’s post, but certainly not limited to) out of flame-worked glass. Mickelson’s eye for detail is so amazingly insane that he even incorporates the very ammunition loaded into the magazines themselves.

Mickelson originally hails from Belvoir, Virginia, USA and was raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. With Mickelson’s level of expertise and skills, it’s no surprise that he has taught extensively at the major glass schools including the Pilchuck Glass School (Washington, USA), Penland School of Crafts (North Carolina, USA), The Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass (New York, USA), and The Eugene Glass School (Oregon, USA).
