Marc Tickle

Marc designs glass kaleidoscopes that are sculpturally appealing on the outside and spatially revealing on the inside. Sculptures within sculptures. Combining art with science, he strives to achieve three dimensional interior images in his kaleidoscopes that defy the space that they occupy. Using the aesthetic values of geometry, Marc’s work conveys a
harmonic balance of shape, color and form. A strong thread of continuity is carried through from the outside to the interior image.

In designing his kaleidoscopes, Marc uses slump and fuse glass with Italian flameworking techniques. Marc makes his paint from mica powders which he then uses to reverse paint on the glass.
