Tacoma Museum of Glass

Tacoma Museum of Glass Seattle, Wasington, USA
Artist in Residence July 23rd – 27th 2008
The project I wish to develop during the residency in Tacoma involves blown glass, regular clear crystal, various optical molds and color in rods.
By using this unique opportunity to work with the glass blowing team at Tacoma, I wish to continue my investigation of the intrinsic merits of glass such as optics and transparency. The goal with this project is to investigate, experiment and to develop a new body of work.
Using the expertise of the team, I wish to experiment with techniques and further investigate and develop the blown form, optic effects, surface texture and tactility, as well as colors and transparency in blown glass objects, with focus on organic, but yet defined form.
