In this Watertower Series, glass and sculpture artist Jeremy Lepisto creates unique artwork featuring photographs carefully merged with hand-blown glass. The amazing collection is produced through an elaborate process, where Lepisto takes average, everyday urban scenes of factories, deserted streets, and construction sites, and applies the images to the glass. Through this inventive technique, the artist invites his viewers to look at the world with a fresh perspective.
Set on top of a steel frame, each hand-blown piece of glass looks like a small water tower. The project visually transforms a complicated water tank, often overlooked in daily life, into a fragile and creative piece of art. The artist says, “I try to highlight the ordinary components and simple workings of everyday life and situations to capture the complex in the common. I strive to create from these themes my own objects that have an intricacy of construction yet yield a result of seamless simplicity.”
