Art of the Blade

Art of the Blade features more than 50 swords and sabers that were designed to be both decorative and functional. With this collection, you’re welcome to balance a sword in your hand while you feel the weight of the blade. Through trial and error, artists spent more than 100 years designing the pieces in this collection.

Welcome to Bliss Point

Utilizing commonly consumed materials throughout his work, and infusing them with a sense of aggressive engagement, artist Keith Kaziak exposes concerns in our precarious culture and times. Structural forms, iconic symbols, commercial culture, and sociopolitical disconnections provoke the viewer to decode and react to his work. Great for high school students learning to analyze and critique artwork.
