Cast Glass Sculpture Moon by Ed NoiseCat, Shuswap and Lil’wat Nation,
Like all of Ed’s cast pieces, Sun and Moon began as wood carvings. Ed enjoys the inspired process of creating wood carvings that can translate into cast glass art, the texture of the wood grain is not lost in the final piece and lends to the depth of design. Sun was carved in Santa Fe and their rays are inspired by the Zia Pueblo sun symbol whose style of depicting sun rays is explored in this piece. Moon was created as a partner to Sun.
