About Timothy


Currently based in Burlington, Vermont, artist Timothy Horn was born in Melbourne, Australia. He studied Sculpture at the Victorian College of the Arts and then Glass at the Australian National University. A Samstag Scholarship took him to the US in 2002, where he completed graduate study at Massachusetts College of Art.

Horn’s work straddles several disciplines and draws from a broad bank of skills, including blown glass, cast lead crystal and various metals. His current “Tree of Heaven” series combines the two distinct sources that have inspired his work over the past decade: those being patterns of 17th and 18th-century jewelry, and 19th-century studies of natural forms such as lichen, coral and sea weed. Beginning with the silhouette of an item of jewelry projected at a much larger scale, Horn drafts a working pattern with the addition of grafted imagery of natural forms. He then sets about fabricating a tree-like structure in wax, to be cast in bronze and nickel-plated. Pearls become large baroque forms in mirrored blown glass.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to understand so much approximately this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you simply can do with some % to force the message home a bit, however instead of that, that is great blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

I love this artist thumbs up if u agree

So amusing! May I know how to contact the artist, I really want to post these photos in other forums so that more people would have learn about his talent!!!

it looks like you put a lot of hard work and time into it your dedication is astounding...i don't know if i could be that patient

The carriage is reminiscent of that used by the Romanov Czars to ride into the country side for the famous annual corn festival in Borschtslavicburg, until Nicholas had the misfortune of having his caravan attacked by grasshoppers in 1899. The carriage was devoured a full 200 miles from his destination, causing him to miss the festival and allegedly sowing some of the seeds (pun intended) of discontent and resentment among the peasantry that caused him to be viewed as imperious and ultimimately (with many many many larger issues) leading to the October Revolution 18 years later.

As for the second picture, it's reminiscent of a hysterectomy.

wwooww!!!!!!!!!!!!!!this is truly a work of art:)

Exquisite attention to detail! Truly a mark of an artist.

WOW! Never would I have thought to use sugar and plywood to create a comment on Cinderella. I am blown away by how long it must have taken. The jellyfish lamps are so COOL!You'd have to build the room around them just so you could look at them.

i've seen the carriage piece but i dont remember where, but its looks amazing and really nice...

You are a magnificent artist !!! I am amazed at your talent !
