Stunning Shattered Glass Animals by Marta Klonowska

Artist Marta Klonowska carefully assembles thousands of razor-sharp shards of shattered glass into beautiful animal sculptures full of vitality and movement. Beginning with a metal frame and a net mesh outline, Klonowska adds the colorful shards one by one, creating textures reminiscent of fur.

The Polish artist takes each of her animal forms from paintings by artists like Peter Paul Rubens and Francisco de Goya. Re-imagined in three dimensions, an unusual medium, and often monochromatic color schemes, these animals are given new life.



In gallery settings, Klonowska’s sculptures are often displayed beside the paintings that inspired them. See more photos at Lorch + Seidel Contemporary.
