Henry Halem

(American, 1938-)

Vitrolite with painted enamel

Overall: 64.8 x 48.3 x 8.9 cm (25 1/2 x 19 x 3 1/2 in.)

Gift of Mike and Annie Belkin in honor of the exhibition, "Glass Today" 1997.165



During his career, Halem has made a wide variety of glass vessels and sculptures. In recent years he has created reliefs made of vitrolite (an opaque glass used in the building industry prior to 1950) with details added in painted enamel. This approach gives his work the character of painting.
