Fiore was working with stained glass about 35 years ago when he started to experiment with capturing webs. He has perfected the process, using only a piece of glass, varnish, and aluminum paint.
The docks in Palisades Park, New Jersey, like most structures on the water, are full of intricate spiderwebs. Fiore was issued a permit by the park to collect webs. He never harms a living spider, but often his pieces will include the prey trapped in the sticky threads. Rocky’s website is: http://whirledwidewebs.com/, and you can view and purchase pieces.
