Solid Motion: By Kelly Witmer

“Combining glass with ceramic began as an experiment, and I continue to push the boundaries of glass in the kiln, sometimes bringing it to the point of boiling over. Finding just the right temperature can vary within a few degrees. I embrace the unexpected results and often let chance lead the way to the finished work.

I’m fascinated with the magical worlds the bubbles and reflections in the glass create. The translucent shapes invoke a duality - acting as a metaphor of behavioral transparency. They can represent buried emotions or memories that sometimes come to light.”

-Kelly Witmer
