Three Astonishing Steel and Glass Sculpture Exhibits by Alex Heveri
THE ASTONISHING GLASS IN FLIGHT EXHIBITS
Glass in Flight and the sequels, Glass in Flight 2 and Glass in Flight Limited, are traveling art and science exhibits totaling 67 steel and Dalle de Verre sculptures of gigantic, realistic insects. Created by nationally known sculptor, Alex Heveri, each piece captures the essence of flight. Sunlight through the colored glass mimics the transparency and iridescence of insect wings, intensifying the illusion of movement and life. All 3 exhibits are being booked into some of America's premier public gardens, zoos and museums.
Alex Heveri is a Tucson-based artist, attorney and sculptor who has been creating enormous steel and glass structures for more than 25 years.
Glass in Flight represents more than three years of solo work. Her massive Dalle de Verre glass and steel sculptures of life-like bees, butterflies, beetles and dragonflies, some towering 12 feet high, together weigh more than 10,000 pounds. The 21 sparkling, realistic sculptures were all conceived, designed, cut, assembled and welded together by the artist herself.
Alex and her artworks have been featured in Tucson Lifestyle Magazine, Arizona Attorney magazine and Jewelry Artist Magazine. She has won numerous art competitions, awards and public art commissions, and her work appears in galleries and private collections.
Heveri’s love of the beauty and complexity of nature is apparent in every piece, as is her impressive command of two notoriously dangerous and unforgiving mediums: steel and glass.
