Alan Goldfarb, Shake Your Booty, 1998, blown glass, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Renwick Acquisitions Fund, 1999.7
Shake Your Booty is part of a group of pieces Alan Goldfarb calls “Archeopop,” in which the sandy surface treatment imitates the weathered appearance of ancient glass. Another method called snake-threading, has been applied with more than one hundred pieces of molten glass trailed over the unfinished form.
