Now On Display At Design Studio Furniture Chicago


                        
Artist Dave Borchers creates 6-7 foot tall mixed media sculpture that combine found art-glass from the 1920's-1970's, with metal.The first display of this work, a collaboration with artist Corbett Reynolds, was at  NYU University Broadway Windows in January, 2002. As a tribute to Reynolds: friend, mentor and collaborator, deceased shortly after this exhibit, each sculpture is signed in his name.

During his extensive travels throughout the USA as one of the premier antique art-glass dealers, Borchers has taken his knowledge of art-glass and applied it to finding perfectly suited pieces to create these unique one of a kind sculptures. Through his 20 years of collaborations with Corbett Reynolds on many forms of art, including: silk-screening, metal sculpture and installation art, Borchers has developed a keen eye for color, balance, and symmetry, critical in the creation of the sculptures.
