Unity and Division in Blue Gold
Blown glass, Murrini roll-up 14 x 8 x 8
I spend a lot of time thinking about perception and the union of the physical/non-physical. In daily living, I aim to be mindful of the way form interacts with intangible aspects of our collective experience. I use this exploration as an impetus to create works that point to windows of transcendence. – Ed Colberg
