Descend

During the summer of 2006 I was an Artist in Residence (AIR) at Pilchuck Glass School, where they often bring in non-glass artist to experiment with the versatility of glass. I was fortunate to work with Master Gaffers Anthony Schafermeyer and Rob Stern, and Assistant Adam Cohen.

This biomorphic Descend series was produced during that residency. It is in keeping with a major aspect of my art practice – to harness a material’s or technology’s inherent properties. In this case blown glass, which relies on gravity, pressure, fluidity and transparency.
