KilnArt Glass Studio
Because I was raised in a big city far from nature, dichroic glass, with its punchy-rich
colour and ample glitter (due to a very thin metallic coating on the surface) is so attractive to me. So I use it to make vessels; small vessels that fit in the palm of the hand. They are like large, precious jewels. They are to cradle and gaze at and get lost in. Each is a Thing of Beauty indeed. Or as I say for short, a ToB (rhymes with ‘Bob’).
‘Getting lost’ brought wonder and mystery, which lead me to make dichroic glass and metal UFOs, a subject the artificiality of dichroic glass lends itself well to.
More recently I have gotten lost in depths of simple, clear glass, and I am presently working on very thick walled ToBs.
