Dexter Glass

Dexter Glass - work that combines flameworked and blown glass components. Sometimes internal light is added to create a unique piece. Metal structures help to unite the glass components. Often recovered materials are used as elements in the assembly.

Some pieces explore combinations of biology and technology. Methods of propagation are suggested when the contents of a creature's body are strewn onto the ground or leak from a pierced side.

Other pieces are purely abstract and explore the power of glass to refract light and utilize layers that contain frozen movement and color. 

Dexter Glass Too features jewelry created from flameworked beads. 

Dexter Glass showed a piece in the 2010 Grand Rapids Art Prize (Art Prize Site). The work entitled "Catalyst" was part of the collection shown at the Cathedral Square - Exhibition Center.  Work was also shown in Cathedral Square's offering for Art Prize 2011. Information about the 2011 piece, entitled "5 Experiments", can be found at: Art Prize artist's page. Visual elements in this piece also appeared in an outdoor piece presented at a Site:Lab event held at Blandford Nature Center in July of 2011 (information at: Figure Ground ).
