Shimmerling Glass's Profile


Bio

I like experimenting with fused glass in trying to capture the luminosity, transparency, and radiance of light. I seek to explore the unfolding of forms, colors, textures in the layering of glass and inclusions. My landscapes combine my glass cutting and design skills to create scenes influenced by the nature of glass. I do not start from a pattern, but rather build up a scene from the glass surrounding me. Thus each artwork is one of a kind. A piece of streaky glass may reflect a lake or an evening sky, iridized glass may suggest meadows or mountains, dichroic glass captures snow, waterfalls and perhaps the sun. These various types of glass are merged to form a harmonious landscape. Depth is created by many firings of layers of glass including dichroic scrape, frit, and glass powder paint tack fused to add dimension and texture. My inspirations come from the natural world. They are not actual places but rather a distillation of various landscapes I have seen.
