Splash Series: Iridized Sinks, Plates, and Bowls
I was fascinated with the color shifts that occurred in iridized and dichroic glass depending on whether the light was reflected or transmitted. Combinations of transparent, opaque, and translucent glass create literal and figurative windows into personal transcendence. The disorientation created when strong light reflects off the iridized surface of a transparent color only to cast a differently colored shadow beneath it creates for the observer an experience in which their own imagination is given birth. There is a moment of awareness and delight - the viewer, too, can create dreams; imagining something to be different from what it is or should be. The shallow curve and natural edges evoke images of a drop in a pool, frozen in time.
