about

Transceiver is a unique sculpture by the British artist, Jon Lewis, created from handblown television glass, cast iron and steel.

Sold as the pair, price above for both.

The two taller sections screw into place on the bottom bases, meaning they can be removed for shipping and transportation.

Monolithic in scale, with a weathered and aged appearance, these totemic pieces have a symbolic presence. 

A reoccurring theme throughout the years within Lewis' work has been the synthesis of glass with metal, which under the creative influence of the artist, results in corrosion, patination and texture.

These blown glass forms are coated by ‘spark impregnation’. Lewis intensely grinds iron and other metals, creating a multitude of small, hot, airborne metal particles that instantly bond and finally cover, the surface of his glass.

Forever evolving works, the consistent detail for each is a window of pure transparent coloured glass, a framed aperture to the internal space, encased and surrounded by this metallic shell.
