ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2018 Submission.
Glass is a fascinating material to work with. You can cut the glass into a variety of shapes and arrange the pieces in a pleasing manner, but, when you place it in the kiln, everything changes! The concept that you began with has shifted and flowed, has become something different than you envisioned, something more interesting, or more beautiful, or more creative. It adds a little mystery to the creative endeavor.
Small wonder then, that I am thrilled to have discovered an artistic medium that brings a little alchemy into my life. I have always been interested in doing crafts but since glass fusion has come into my life it has become my passion. I am filled with anticipation when I open my kiln on the day after a firing, because I know that the pieces that I began with, will have taken on a new form.
