Reflections on Glass

Reflections on Glass

Humankind has a long history of using glass to adorn, to express, to protect, and defend… Beads made of glass has been used to purchase some thing as valuable as an animal, a piece of land and even something as precious as another human being‘s life.

Stained glass has been used in churches and cathedrals to speak to the glory of faith and to illuminate both historical and mythical allegories, stories and legends.
Glass in itself is a bit of a conundrum… It is sometimes liquid, sometimes solid, sometimes strong, sometimes fragile. At times sharp and dangerous others smooth sensuous and beguiling. It’s amorphous qualities make it difficult to define but the glowing colour, light , contours and shapes it takes on transmit the artist vision into some thing as unique as their very own voice.  As a medium and it can be opaque transparent or translucent as well as fanciful, functional, practical or frivolous and sometimes all of the above… and while we the artists can cut, assemble, heat, manipulate and melt it …ultimately the fate of the piece rests in the hands of our tools, gravity, the power grid and happenstance… It can be uplifting, magical ,heartwarming or heartbreaking but you never really know until it’s done… Basically to me, Glass is light, love, color, possibility, Magic
