Reza Pishgahi

The abstract sculptures I create represent the opposites within nature — the transparent, fragility of glass and the opacity and strength of steel and stone.

Cast, cut, and carved glass is joined with cut, shaped and welded steel to create both wall pendants and table top sculptures.

The poet, Rumi, provides the inspiration for my sculptures.

Rumi wrote, “When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
