In a world that is arguably rudderless, Larry’s creations confine the chaos into handheld galaxies that are as much enticing to the eye as they are soothing to the soul. Compact borosilicate spheres encapsulate the artist’s imagination and reveal dramatic scenes reminiscent of deep-space star clusters. Fiery opals play the parts of dying suns on the verge of rebirth as silver and gold fumes take on the role of radiated space debris exhibiting intense color and depth.
Larry’s marbles have an intoxicating affect. The clarity, shape, depth, composition, and high level of resolution in his work fools the eye and can confuse the vestibular system, giving viewers a light-headed effect.
His work is prized by collectors, and is elevated even further to some in his made-per-order Memorial Spheres. Cazes Glass Memorial Spheres bridge artistic mastery with the deeply personal. Atomized remains are encased in handheld galaxies. Ashes to space dust, Cazes Glass Memorial Spheres exhibit the same depth and wonder as the artist’s signature forms, but are made to bring personal reflection into the moment.
Larry Cazes works alone in a cramped space near the Pacific Ocean on the central coast of California. He is an unassuming commuter in a mid-sized sedan. He works everyday and creates handheld galaxies that awe, inspire, and induce reflection.
