As a visiting artist at Western Neon School of Art (Seattle, WA) in October of 2019, I taught a class that drew parallels between the liquid-like state of hot glass and water as a medium. We talked about the geometry of an ocean wave, watched the intro to Water World (worth it), and bent glass into fluid shapes. While there, Dani Kaes, Will Kirtley, and I made this enormous Fissure. A Fissure – or a rip in space-time – is a visual glimmer that represents the possibility of what is beyond our known world. Measuring in at 10 feet long, Fissure X is the largest (and likely, final) work in a year-long series of luminous cracks.
