Glass art, cast in sand

  • Published on Sep 29, 2019
  • Marlene Rose's glass art is seductive and ethereal. But to get the unique shapes of her works, she uses an ancient yet rare technique called sand casting. She demonstrated her art to correspondent Lee Cowan, and created her own glistening version of the "Sunday Morning" sun.

    Loved this piece for the beautiful artwork, plus I grew up not far from Fort Wayne, IN and now live in Clearwater, FL

    Marlene Rose had a booth quite some years ago within the St Louis Art Show, which is traditional every September downtown, Clayton, MO. I had been several times to view any new artists and what art was being brought to the public. I had never expected to be casually strolling through the center of the show while glancing down one of the street arteries to see what the other booths were showing. I spotted glass, and I was pulled right to Marlene Rose's booth. Now, this is true. And more, I have never been one to admire glass art. I have admired most of the other mediums. With the glass, I have only liked very little and few pieces. Then of course, when Chihuly's work showed, I was wowed. When I got to Marlene's booth, I was surprised by my own personal reaction to her work. It was not one or two of her pieces I liked, but I liked all of her booth. I was surprised by my own response. I was even surprised by my overall pleasure her glass brought to me. Then I learn she was domiciled in my childhood hometown, which later, she opened her gallery to the same given area of the lovely gulf coast of Florida. I have followed Marlene Rose since her St Louis visit. Something said she was of a specific work and on her way. I have had a pleasure following her all these years to see what her glass inspiration brings to us next. As for CBS, congratulations for being so clever to program Marlene Rose and to bring an artist of specific medium to us. The USA has many artists of various mediums for the public to know. Marlene Rose, thank you!

    I'm so happy to see Lee Cowan and Jane Pauley recognizing the artistry of Marlene Rose. As a fellow artist and as someone who has photographed her work for almost 20 years -- I can say she is an amazing artist and a good human being. Thank you CBS Sunday Morning for doing a well-deserved feature on someone who is an inspiration! -- David Monroe, Portals of Intent

    Did anyone else notice the guy did like 90% of the work? But she still referred to them as her pieces 😆

      Most prominent, established glass artists rely on up & coming (hopefully) artists themselves. These too - short, mini interviews cannot be expected to "feed" you the whole poop of the story. Chihuly has been around a very long time and has employed a multitude of budding artists & craftspeople to assist in the process of developing the pieces. They get to learn and get paid to do it! Her husband is adamantly devoted to "partner-up" with her, and lucky at that!

    Her work looks nice, but I hope she finds a better material for the molds. Styrofoam is horrible for our environment. Best wishes to her, though. And thanks to CBS Sunday Morning for this interesting report. :)

    Ok I live in Fort Wayne now I will have to see if her art is still there and if it I will have to go and see.

    There is no bigger fan of blown glass art than me, but her technique and the results left much to be desired. It all looked like the recent good tries of a high school shop class.
    Maybe that's the reason why it was so tough for her to find a shop where she could work.

      @Tom M. Indeed she is. How incredibly perceptive of you to understand that.

      @Stone W - My favorite art pieces are the ones where people feel the need to explain why I should admire them. Or worse yet, _appreciate_ them.
      Let's be honest here... The woman is pouring a liquid substance that hardens in a mold.

      @Stone W, her technique is actually used pretty often! Check out a decent exhibit at a gallery and/or an art museum! Glass art is usually displayed. Chihuly! Peace

      How much do you make with your art? Post the video of CBS interviewing you about your work. You're stupid

    So is she doing this because she respects other cultures and wants to display her art? Or does she make these to make a profit off of cultural art that has nothing to do with her

      Bear Briganti probably a little of both?
