I've seen a lot chandeliers, but not many like this
Looks like an exploding dinner service for eight, or maybe six...

Kinetic sculptures
Artist Juan Fontanive creates perpetual 'flapping' bird sculptures using Audubon guides and illustrations of birds and butterflies. The sound really adds to sculptures... Even though it's sort of an eerie sound of a bird trapped in a box. 

The video of the butterflies is really cool. - http://www.juanfontanive.com/ Found via - http://goo.gl/oZI2kg

3d model of interior with red glass sculpture
After modeling all the furniture and stuff for this scene, I decided to add a cat. I am sure there is a reason you never see pets in architecture design scenes... But I couldn't resist.

Putting all together in context..the mission table looks great in the interior. However the personal touch with a cat is an extra bonus!

Mission style table 3d model
I've been busy working on some furniture models for an interior architecture scene. I wasn't sure how light colored wood and green marble would look together, but it worked better than I expected.

Easy to unfold... Hopefully, they have instructions for folding back flat in case I move.

Hot glass always in rotation
A glassblower is almost always turning the blow pipe. Keeping the glass 'centered' while working is important. When the glass is hot enough to move, or is molten, gravity will cause the glass piece to sag. Turning the pipe at the right speed counters the affects of gravity.

Technology and Art
You pretty much have to watch the video to appreciate the delicate detail in the marriage of machine and art...

This was a nice post written about us in Aspiring Home.
 
Bernard Katz Glass - Aspiring Home
Very nice post written about our hand blown glass

"The technology that is created from the human brain is extraordinary, but when an artist shapes ideas into beautiful art with their own hands is no less remarkable. Bernard Katz is an American artist and sculptor who specializes in glassblowing. His single pieces and collections will be sure to stand out and add exclusiveness to your home decor."

Story

Contemporary art glass sculpture and designer, but mostly a creative problem solver
Introduction
About me

I am a professional artist, glass blower, and sculptor. I have been creating hand blown glass and glass sculpture almost for 20 years. As the owner of a glass studio and business, I wear many hats and consider myself more of a "creative problem solver".
 
My creative energy doesn't stop at the physical objects I make. My interest in technology, electronics, physical computing, 3D modeling squeeze their way into my world.

I have a very eclectic mix of interests including art, music, science, business topics, and of course humor is always welcome in my stream.

I enjoy G+ because it is the best place to meet and engage with extraordinary people all over the world.

With my wide range of interests, I have many kinds of circles. It is helpful to me to know a person's interest so I know which "circle" to include them in. If your "about" page is blank with little information, I have no idea which of my circles to include you in.

"Engagement" on G+ is key for me... If you engage with me , I will engage with you. I don't expect someone to always agree with me and I am not easily offended... So don't be shy, I won't bite :)

Side note - Does anyone else ever have the lyrics in their head from the Pina Colada Song by Rupert Homes when filling out the 'about' section??

Very good authentic fresh Italian food! The service was great! The prices are great for the quality of the food. This place is quickly becoming one of our favorites. We went for my wife's birthday and they made the night even more enjoyable for our family. It is a BYOB, which is fine because I can bring my own favorite wine. After eating here a few times, I have no problem recommending Pizzeria Dimeo's.
