"I am interested in human relationships and development, and use the figures in my pieces to look at how we grow, change, influence and are influenced by our environment. I use both positive and negative forms within the glass sculptures that I make, as the glass itself can appear either solid or insubstantial."
Milon Townsend has been making artwork in glass for nearly 50 years. Self-taught, he has created a vast body of work, from perfumes and paperweights to one-of-a-kind sculptures. His training in classical music was instrumental in his tendency to create objects with form, balance and harmony.
12 years in NYC exposed and immersed him to the world of dance. This interest quickly evidenced itself in his work. To this day, he is known for his understanding of the human form, and his expressive use of it in his artwork. Primarily a flameworker, for the past 15 years Townsend has been exploring kiln casting, creating, experimenting and transferring his vocabulary of human forms to this new process.
