About The Artist: Sand

When I was a small child, my uncle had a bar in his basement. The bar had two windows made from rippled glass blocks. Each window measured approximately twenty four to thirty inches square. Behind each window, inside the bar, there was a light. The light had a round colored wheel. The wheel was divided into pie shapes, each a different color. The wheel slowly spun around, illuminating color through the textured glass. It was like a beautiful slow dance of color and I stared at this for hours on end. Color and light through glass, a combination that has never left me.

Why Sand? I could write for hours, simply put; glass is made from sand. Glass can allow us to see more clearly, but one grain can take our sight away. The carvings in the glass I create are made by sand pounding against the very product it created.

Proverbs 27:17 says; Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
