The Glass Ride Exhibit Extended Through October 19th

“The Glass Ride” is full scale glass sculptor replica of a “chopper” motorcycle with kiln cast and blown glass components. It received popular support during and after the 67th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Classic. The exhibit has been extended through October 19th to allow more visitors to view this one-of-a kind piece in its American debut. The artist is Joe Stanaway, a Helena, Montana native, who completed his Masters in glass and architecture glass design from the Edinburgh College of Art, where he unveiled “The Glass Ride” in December, 2006. Joe says of his work and himself:  “I find it easy to be drawn into the look of custom motorcycles. They are very much like glass; the extraordinary use of sculpted chrome polished to a mirror finish, the heavy clear coating over a beautiful buffed petrol tank giving it a transparent glass -like quality”. The sculpture is exhibited at the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame is located at 999 Main Street in Sturgis, South Dakota.  It is open to the public from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors 65+ and free for children 12 and under. Sturgis Motorcycle Museum.

    It’s a good design. Now producing motorcycle has become a kind of art. Many friends I meet on a site called bikerkiss are artists. We usually talk about how to make the motorcycle perfect together.
