My glass artwork is more about science than art, or at least it was in its beginning. I experiment with the viscosity and plasticity of glass as a liquid, mass and its displacement, and the effects of time and gravity on the glass. Glass is a great medium for experimenting because almost every variable of the creation process can be changed to reveal a completely different result.
After over a decade of experimenting, I created a style of thin glass panels that trick the brain into seeing a perceived depth that is not physically there. I purposefully use overlapping forms, gradients of tone similar to how a landscape fades due to distance, and the relative size of repeated forms to achieve the feeling of distance when you look at my art. I suppose a lot of that sounds like science but I think that the pursuit of it is more of an art form.
