ArtsQuest Dedicates New 'The Four Elements' Glass Sculpture at ArtsQuest Center a stunning glass sculpture that features hundreds of pieces of handmade glass and stands 40 feet tall. Located in the center of the ArtsQuest Center's three-story-tall spiral staircase, The Four Elements is a dynamic work of art that features more than 900 custom-crafted glass pieces, each one made at ArtsQuest's Hot Glass Studio at the Banana Factory, the only hot glass studio in the region. The work of art, dedicated during a special ceremony today, was designed by ArtsQuest glass studio artists John Choi and Dennis Gardner and took more than six months to create. Made possible through the gracious support of principal donors Hal and Terri Lubsen of Center Valley, The Four Elements weighs approximately 3,700 pounds and is illuminated by hundreds of LED lights, highlighting the unique characteristics of each piece of glass. The sculpture was created using a variety of glass making techniques including hot glassblowing, glass sculpting, flameworking and stained glass techniques.
