Jacob’s Ladder Glass Block Sculpture

I’ve completed a new sculpture in a shattered architectural glass block, prisms, stainless fasteners and glue. It measures 8 x 21 x 10 inches. While it is a departure from my steel mesh and ribbon in their figurative sense it still explores the use of found post industrial trash products and their use in modern sculpture. I’ve included three views of ‘Jacob’s Ladder’

Donald Kolberg graduated with a Fine Arts Degree from California State University, Los Angeles. He taught at the Los Angeles School of Art and co-founded Art Core, an organization dedicated to the open dialogue and display of the work of emerging artists. He continued his Master studies at Otis Art Institute. While at Otis Art Institute his teacher and main influence was internationally recognized painter Arnold Mesches. In Artcore he worked under the guidance of Lydia Takashita. With their teaching Donald learned the value of depth, texture and form in images and surface. He incorporated this into his concept of Life Forms, the portrayal of the human figure as a landscape of life and a celebration of form through Sculpture and Painting.

One thought on “Jacob’s Ladder Glass Block Sculpture”

  1. It seems to me that sculpture is as much about the material as it is about the form. I’ve always thought that glass was a sensual material, since it interacts with light in a way that opaque materials can not.
