Huntress

  • Dan Dailey, Huntress, 1993, light bulb, glass, bronze, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the James Renwick Alliance, 1994.77

Luce Center Label
Every piece that Dan Dailey creates begins with a drawing, and he likes to keep some of the two-dimensional elements of the sketch in the final glass sculpture. In Huntress, the hard geometric lines of the female figure came from a drawing, and while she is three-dimensional, the artist made no attempt to make her look realistic. Dailey captured her midthrust as she drives her spear into a spotted glass bubble. He called manipulations like this "planned collisions," when he deforms the glass in its molten stage.
