Said John about his glass artwork:“I use glass as my medium because of its translucency and reflective qualities…In working with glass, my focus is on shape, form, texture and color…I use many different materials mixed with glass, yet glass is the dominated focus in all its various applications and techniques.”

“In creating this visual transparency; abstracting images, symbols and text, my work invokes a spiritual awareness and connection to the past. My aesthetic philosophy is an exploration and extension of my cultural identity. I am reclaiming and reconciling the past, with the present, in order to move forward.”

The title of the triptych piece is “Kadima”. Kadima means “Forward” in Hebrew.  The medium is fused glass and each panel measures 8″x10″.

Congratulations John!
