The vessels Kelly creates are generally larger works in glass, often 12" to 20" at the larger dimension, and limited by the size of what's called the "Glory Hole." This is the furnace where the glass artists keep the glass at a working temperature throughout the creative portion of the process--generally 1800-2200° Fahrenheit. The glass process itself takes a tremendous toll on the person making the glass (bigger and heavier), and usually has the artist making smaller pieces as the years go by. Anyone of you who have worked the glass, knows what it is like to suspend a lot of weight at the end of of a pipe for as much as 45 minutes, and because of its temperature, it can't be put down prematurely. Oh, and form or make something gorgeous on top of that.
