Susan HopeArt is all about light and color. Out of all the diverse ways of capturing these elusive energies, I have found glass to be my favorite. Sometimes it can be the most challenging, considering the huge element of suspense before opening a kiln.

My work has evolved through many different glass techniques. I have found that my greatest gratification is what I call the ‘impressionist glass mosaic.’  When I am melting glass together in the kiln or attaching pieces of glass to glass or wood, individual dots of color ultimately produce a recognizable pattern, image, landscape or sky. I work with glass in all sizes . . . from fine powder to large chunks. Many layers of glass produce a depth of image that is difficult to achieve with other mediums.

There is nothing more exciting than watching the sunlight have its way with the color particles. Pure joy.
