The Crystalline Compositions are inspired by naturally occurring crystal formations. These compositions are constructed piece-by-piece to create a geometric structure that appears to have evolved naturally in its own time.
This work explores the sculptural potential of this pattern-making material and the changes and growth of natural matter and the processes of hot glass itself.
