|Tamara Laird / Ceramics / US|
|Syl Mathis / Glass / US|
Syl Mathis has been with the Washington Glass School from its first “glass and steel” workshop. Self-taught as a glass carver, Syl combines investment casting techniques, high pressure abrasive carving, and cold-working techniques to create sculptural pieces in glass that often reflect stylized natural artifacts. His imaginative and skillful use of design--designs which are combinations of man-made and natural forces--not only reflects a love of Nature which invites meditation and thoughtfulness, but also, eloquently highlights the beauty of Nature's own patterns with a precision that transcends the mere manipulation of tools or careful, mechanical dexterity. As a professional educator, Syl is a firm believer in process, the process of creative expression and of learning; as such, each carving is both a piece of art and the first step in a journey that promises to deepen our perception of Nature.
