Ben Buswell, ‘The Story is Not the Story No. 1’, 2017, Upfor

To create this work, the artist carefully pressed the front side of a flag of the United States into a bed of fine, white frit (silica granules), then heat fused the frit, resulting in a crystalline debossment. This was accomplished during a residency at Bullseye Glass Co. in summer 2017. The work is hollow and may, with some modification by the artist, be hung on a wall.
