Antonio Dumlao

About the Piece

To execute the subject in what we generally know of as stained glass, but which Dumlao more humbly called “sculptured glass.” He created his sarimanok using crushed or pounded varicolored glass from discarded beverage and medicine bottles, which were then fortified with polymer in wrought-iron frame. Dumlao based it on the principle of a process called cloisonné, defined as “a technique of creating designs on metal vessels with colored-glass paste within enclosures made of copper or bronze wires, which have been bent or hammered into the desired pattern.
