Product description:Among the many series of works that BJ Katz has completed “Self Acceptance Series,” focusing on her body shape; “Winged Victory Series,” featuring idealized Greek male and female torsos; and “Romanesque Series,” all created in a combination of glass techniques including cast, draped, painted, etched, and fused with precious metals. The technique used to create the dashes of vibrant, spectral color is called dichroic flecking. Because Katz loves to push the envelope—from sandblasted etching in leaf patterns and vines on an upright torso to arcs of prismatic color, she seeks to create a lively visual sensation. Underlying the visual pleasure of her work, however, is the greater message—the celebration of humanity and the joy of the human body’s diversity.
