"Glass intrigues me.
The way a piece of glass changes with the quality of light make me catch my breath. The contrasts – strength and fragility, depth and transparency – can combine to produce a thing of beauty that could last for centuries.
I really enjoy the process. Warm glass, shaped and fused in a kiln, is an exploration of unknown lands. From concept to creating a mold, choosing the right combination of glass, deciding the optimum temperature and ramp speed to fuse, slump, and anneal. It is as much science as art – maybe more like alchemy."
Now primarily working in glass and metal, Gary started in glass from his background as a serigrapher (silk-screener), printing precious metals onto glass and firing it in a kiln.
Then, he fell in love with glass, itself.
