Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland has acquired “Glass Claws: Pulse Point” (pictured), a 2007 sculpture by Richard Remsen. The work, which has been installed in the museum’s Micah Gallery as part of the current “Maine: The Farnsworth Collection” exhibition, features nearly 100 variously colored blown-glass lobster claws on cantilevered plate glass sheets infused with X-ray scans of actual lobster claws. Remsen founded The Foundry — a studio specializing in bronze sculpture and blown and cast glass — in an old blueberry processing building in West Rockport in 1974. Museum purchase of “Glass Claws” was with funds provided by The Seattle Foundation, Mrs. Jean A. Rhodes, Mr. and Mrs. Ellsworth C. Alvord III, Mr. and Mrs. Richard W. Alvord and Mrs. Katharyn Alvord Gerlich, 2018.10.
