Artist uses old tires, scrap to form powerful images
Artist turns old tires, scraps into masterpieces
By Maggie Martin
You know those old tire treads you see splashed all over the highways and byways as you speed along going hither, thither and yon?
Well, attorney Julie Glass brakes for 'em. The more worn, the better. She takes her life into her leather-gloved hands to grab them and toss them into a truck. Turns them into flags and other folk art which can be used inside or outside. Art in the show ranges from about $75 to $5,000, Glass said.
Fans — and those who might be — can see them at "Dangerous Curves," which opens Saturday at Little Shanty Folk Art Gallery and Primitive Life Museum, Shreveport.
"The mixed media art pieces will explore two main areas. The first will be the visually interesting aspects of twists, turns and curves, such as the beauty of the female form or the complexity of curving lines found in nature," Glass said. "Underlying the visual will be the conceptual — how life can take unexpected turns and present intriguing forks in the road."
"She takes discarded material and turns it into attractive, collectible works of art," said Robert Currie, co-owner of Little Shanty with his wife, Alania.
He feels Glass' work is one of a kind and inspirational to the viewer because of creativity expressed.
And, he finds Glass' tire tread flag thought provoking, calling to mind how the first flag was formed from raw material, figuratively and literally.
"Customers find her work unique and it is one of our top sellers," Currie said.
And the body of work? Currie feels it is a perspective of how Glass sees life.
Exhibit viewers will see everything from a female figure made from a wrecked shopping cart to an LSU flag made of tire treads.
The exhibit includes pieces wrought with welding or worked into mosaics, most done with found objects, things she collects on the street, at estate sales or brought to her door by friends. (But, no, they do not bring her tire treads!)
One pal turned up with the inside of a piano, while another presented a box of hammers he picked up in the trash. A woman's bust Glass scrounged from the trash at an estate sale.
By day, Glass is an assistant attorney with the City of Shreveport, a job she's held 31 years. She is assigned to Shreveport City Council and the City Finance Department.
Although she has been "creative" all her life, she didn't take art classes in college and really didn't delve into the form seriously until her children were grown and off to college.
"I think it had always been percolating around in my mind," she said, in her art-filled cottage and yard in Broadmoor.
Perhaps because it is so different, it is the tire tread art which commands attention.
When Glass took the "Red Dress" into the Philadelphia Center office for Auction Against AIDS, there was much talk about it. She isn't sure the exact price, but the last time she looked at the bid sheet there, it was around $400 to $500.
Although it took her a while to figure out how to cut the tires, she now turns them into rich and complex red, white and blue or LSU gold and purple flags. The more you look at them, the more you see.
There is a tire tread mermaid in an ocean blue which appears to be slipping out of the water.
Glass' doll sculptures have titles like "My hair is not high maintenance, but my heart is."
Why tire treads?
Well, they have personalities.
"I had looked at them on the side of the road and they were very interesting to me. I was attracted to them because of the patterns. There are all different patterns. Some have steel belts, some don't," said Glass, who started working with tires about three years ago.
Originally, she constructed abstract forms out of them, but today does representational sculptural figures.
"They do much better in a representational form, rather than pure abstract," Glass said.
She doesn't shape the tires, but goes with the flow of them. And, loves "the shreds" which fan out from the end of the tire.
It is the shredding, as Glass refers to it, that gives the pieces life.
So does the paint she applies which highlights the rutted details.
Take the object she is working on right now.
It started out as an angel, but is now an insect. "I think it is the (rippled) wooden head. It looks like a beehive or an ant," Glass said.
The tire strips are painted green, layered over each other, with shreds flowing out to form a flourish in front. Copper strands stand straight up on the head, as though they have been electrically shocked. The base is a brake pad.
From a distance, Glass' black and gold fleur de lis, created of many tire patterns, is just what it seems. Up close, it is rich in detail a
Several special-edition DMC-12 cars have been produced over the years, and the car is most notably featured as the time machine in the Back to the Future trilogy.
The PRV engines of the cars were dubbed over with recorded V8 sounds.
Six DeLorean chassis were used during the production, along with one manufactured out of fiberglass for scenes where a full-size DeLorean was needed to "fly" on-screen; only three of the cars currently exist, with one having been destroyed at the end of Back to the Future III,
two additional cars left to rot, and the fiberglass replica being torn apart for scrap.
Universal Studios owns two of the remaining cars occasionally putting them on display or using them for other productions, and the last resides in a private collection after having been extensively restored.
One of several DeLorean prototypes is still in existence, and is currently for sale after undergoing a complete restoration at DeLorean Motor Company of Florida (DMCFL).
There have also been major finds in the last few years of "pilot cars".
These cars, used for testing of the DeLorean, had been thought destroyed.
The test car featured on the front cover of Autocar in 1981 announcing the DeLorean to the world was found in 2003 in a barn in Northern Ireland; it is currently undergoing restoration. Production of the DeLorean started at VIN 500. VINs 502 and 530 were used by Legend Industries as a proof of concept for a twin-turbo version of the standard DeLorean PRV-V6 engine.
Only one other twin-turbo engine is known to exist: it was purchased in the late 1990s by an individual owner.
VIN 500, notable for being the first production DeLorean to roll off the line in 1981, is on display in the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.
For Christmas 1981, A DeLorean/American Express promotion planned to sell one hundred 24k-Karat Gold Plated DMC-12s for $85,000 each to its gold card members, but only two were sold.
One of these was purchased by Roger Mize, president of Snyder National Bank in Snyder, Texas.
VIN #4301 sat in the bank lobby for over 20 years before being loaned to the Petersen Automotive Museum of Los Angeles. It has a black interior, and an automatic transmission.
The second gold-plated American Express DMC-12 was purchased by Sherwood Marshall, an entrepreneur and former Royal Canadian Naval Officer. Mr. Marshall donated his DeLorean to the William F. Harrah Foundation/National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada.
This car, VIN #4300, is the only one of the three existing gold-plated examples to be equipped with a manual transmission.
This car has a tan interior.
Like its golden siblings, it is a low-mileage vehicle with only 1,442 miles on the speedometer.
A third gold-plated car exists with 636 miles clocked up;
it carries the VIN plate for the last DeLorean, #20105, though final assembly was actually completed in Columbus, Ohio in 1983.
This car was assembled with spare parts that were required by American Express in case one of the other two that were built were damaged.
All necessary gold-plated parts were on hand, with the exception of one door.
The car was assembled after another door was gold-plated, though the added door does not precisely match the rest of the car in color and grain.
The car was first acquired by the winner of a Big Lots store raffle.
Consolidated International, which owned the department store, had purchased 1,374 DMC-12s during the DeLorean Company's financial troubles, acquiring the remaining stock after the company went into receivership.
Now held by a private owner in La Vale, Maryland, the third and last gold-plated DeLorean is currently for sale at the price of $250,000.
This car and the example in Reno have saddle-brown leather interiors, a color scheme which was intended to become an option on later production cars.
However, these two cars were the only DeLoreans to be thus equipped from factory parts.
DMC Texas' new build cars
DMC Texas (based in Humble, Texas) announced on July 30, 2007 that the car would be returning into very limited production (about twenty cars per year) in 2008.
The newly produced cars would have a base price of $57,500 and have new stainless steel frames; with optional extras such as GPS, an enhanced "Stage 2" engine, and possibly a new modern interior.
The cars would be made with 80% old parts and the rest new.
This project was featured in an episode of Modern Marvels.
The term "return to production" is something of a misnomer, the cars are built on DeLorean underbodies built by the original company in the 1980s and retaining their VINs.
The cars' titles will show the year of the underbody's manufacture.
They are, therefore, not new DeLoreans, but complete rebuilds of the car from the underbody with enhancements.
The DMC-12 was featured and mentioned in many films and on television, most notably as the time machine in the Back to the Future trilogy.
