“Salome Series” 2003, 36” x 24”; Scripps Ranch, San Diego residence
In 2001, artist Spaulding worked with the Lamberts Glasfabrik in Waldsasssen, Germany to create sheets of glass of a specific palate for a project in San Diego, California. The glass was made at the factory, using the technologies for which Bohemian glass is famous. Six workers were necessary to make each sheet of hand blown glass. Altogether ten sheets were manufactured. The glass was titled Salome glass because of the sense of aroma and dream-like sensuality the colors create. With these sheets of glass three panels were created at Derix Studio in Tannusstein, Germany. Two of those panels are installed in a San Diego residence. The third of these panels is available from the artist’s collection.
