Ancient Pot, Vessels and Earthen Series
It is said that the first fusing and kiln casting of glass was done by the ancient Mesopotamians in the second millennium BC. Of course there was already the wonderful art of ceramics in that time, and it’s said that the early warm glass evolved from ceramics.
Alone in my studio one late evening I began to imagine how it would be to unearth remnants of ancient ceramics and glass sheltered by the earths soil for so many years. It must have been so mesmerizing finding such beautiful remnants of glass and ceramics quietly being dormant of its rich glazes and colors. Who are the hands that created such beauty? Mesmerized with those thoughts stirring in my mind evolved my depiction of ancient designs on glass.
