    相信“玩”这件事对每个人而言都是至关重要的,而“玩乐精神”在艺术家Nancy Callan的艺术创作中也发挥着重要的作用,她的灵感正是来自漫画书和玩具中那些鲜艳的颜色、夸张的造型以及潜意识里的玩乐精神。这件作品《陀螺》就是Callan艺术创作理念的最好代表,以儿时玩具为灵感,形态又酷似传统威尼斯服装中的帽尖,充分表达了热手机万博登录吹制的流动性和从熔炉里收获的惊喜与乐趣之间的高超平衡。

    Nancy Callan’s work explores the notion of play as an important component in creativity. It is also a dialogue with the challenging medium of blown glass. Nancy was influenced by the bright colors and inflated shapes found in comic books and toys, and by the playful spirit of the unconscious mind. While creating each piece, she tries to balance the fluidity of hot glass with the sense of wonder and fun she felt the first time she gathered from the furnace. Callan believes play is essential not only for the artist but for everyone. When we daydream or play games, we return to our childlike state of mind, where we are free to explore and imagine. This simple joy is a counterweight to our busy lives, and is central to artistic process.

She began her career as an assistant to Lino Tagliapietra and as a production gaffer for the Manifesto Lighting Corporation. While developing her own artwork, Callan assisted prominent artists including Flora Mace and Joey Kirkpatrick, Ginny Ruffner, and Josiah McElheny. Today, Callan remains a key member of Lino Tagliapietra’s glassblowing team and travels internationally as the maestro’s assistant.  Callan has taught advanced glassblowing workshops at the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA and Haystack Mountain School on Deer Isle, ME.
