“As a professional scientist, I explore glass as a medium because of the myriad of forms and combinations that provide opportunities for experimentation. Combining the clarity and luminosity of the glass with imbedded imagery creates both beauty and story.

These works are created with ordinary window (float) glass. These images are constructed by painting parts of the scene onto different layers of glass, which are then fused together.

In this series, the physical depth of the glass layers is used to enhance the feeling of separation, distance and atmosphere. Anne Plant
