Selector Statement

For 15 years, Dylan Brams has used the Venetian ampolina form as a test of his glassblowing skills. Similar to the way a pianist might practice scales, 039 to 058 records 19 of those attempts as a layered, digital composite photograph. I’m drawn to the way this project both glorifies making and eradicates the individual object.
