The Glass Artwork of Steven Tippin
Steven Tippin is a Glass Artist living and making in the Kitchener-Waterloo area of Ontario, Canada. He has been studying, creating, and teaching with glass since 1995. Tippin's unique style has evolved in the attempt to create thin panels of glass (about 1/4" or 0.6 mm) that appear to have a false, perceived depth. In order to achieve this, Tippin draws from his knowledge of perspective found in paintings, tonal shifts found in photography, and other visual clues that the brain uses to judge distances. While utilizing overlapping and relatively similar-sized forms to atmospheric distortion and mass displacement, Tippin's work lives between Art and Science.
