Project Description

Ann Cavanaugh

Few media attract like glass. Color and light transform in ways that are unique. It has vibrancy and depth not achieved by other art forms. The processes of producing and shaping glass use basic elements of earth and fire. Glass once valued only as a utilitarian material is now celebrated for the clarity, transparency, and luminescence found in contemporary art glass. I grew up roaming and “making” in the outdoors of Oregon. Early exposure to formal art instruction and lots of room for experimentation has culminated in my being a maker of glass. The glass I make reflects the textures and colors of the natural world. I have developed a technique which uses many forms of compatible glass. I use the beauty of my raw material with the heat of my kilns to create deep layers and texture.
