PORTONOY, Sallie

Sallie Portnoy is a sculptor working mostly in cast glass crystal although recent works have also included a 6 ft stainless steel sculpture, polyurethane figures, bronze & ceramics.  As much as Portnoy’s work is narrative and a study of form, it is also very much an exploration of light. Her glass plays with the light as it changes from thick to thin, as it absorbs and reflects the light, and as different colours mix when they are melted together.

Portnoy gives the glass body language and uses forms to reflect this, which is why most pieces can stand alone or in communication with one another. And although these forms are undergoing a transformation, Portnoy continues to tap into the universal language that binds us all through her use of material, form, light, and colour.
