In the skilled hands of the glassworker, glass rods are transformed into the artists’ vision. Whether a paperweight filled with delicate pink roses or a native Navajo basket with black-eyed Susans, these glass sculptors capture the beauty of nature in their glass art.

“My art is my practice, an alchemical experience of bending and shaping a solid, glass, into a liquid form then creating a sculpture from this change in material. This transformation happens in the glass artist as she creates it, within the material while it changes shape and, I hope, within the viewer when he engages the sculpture.” ~ Melissa Ayotte
