Salt Spring Island, B.C.
Mini Beetle Sculptures
My name is Sean Godard. This would have been my first year at Art in the Pearl! For those unfamiliar with me…I make insects! I make them out of glass and metal. The glass generally has a variety of kiln work. Insect parts are made with fused glass and then kiln formed for the eyes of insects or perhaps the sections of a beetles carapace. Sheet copper is used to make the insects body for form and structural integrity. As you might notice at first glance, I don’t try to make my insects cute. Though I have fun with colour, I relish the beauty in the oddity and form that is all around us in the insect world and enjoy the challenge of applying my skills to this subject. Mosquitos to butterflies it’s all in my wheelhouse
