Cameo, 2010, neon transformer, cables, overall 45 x 30 x 30 cm
Simon Moretti's latest collection of artworks called Talismen and Yantras include this piece, Cameo. Made from a single cane of 12mm purple glass, filled with blue gas and using 30m/A electrodes running off a Mode NeoTran. The artwork is three dimensional, not dissimilar to a knot un-tieing, and was made to Simon's precise specification with help from both drawings and a small maquette.
