kiss sculptures

GlassKissCast_Negative_08

Each kiss cast is transformed through a series of mould making techniques to create a negative space that is suspended forever within a block of sparkling lead crystal glass.

Each mouth and style of kissing is different, so each kiss sculpture is completely unique.

The beautiful magnifying properties of this glass allow you to see intricate details and textures of the tongues and lips.

You can commission your own unique kiss sculpture or purchase an anonymous kiss sculpture from the collection.

Charlie has collected hundreds of kiss casts from all over the world towards her ‘Anatomy of Desire’ installation – shown recently at the Wellcome Collection, London.  She has also created many kiss sculptures to commission for wedding, anniversary and Valentine’s gifts.

These are some examples of  the kiss sculptures, from the first impressions taken in alginate through to the finished polished glass pieces.
