When searching for creative inspiration, the richness and diversity of the natural world are hard to beat.
Sometimes the beauty in nature can be found in its subtleties, like the soft pastels of a southwest desert landscape.
Strata are uniquely appropriate as a subject for glass art interpretation because the chemistry we use to create these designs is derived from the same materials found in strata.
Strata are layers of sedimentary rock or soil differentiated by unique chemistry and composition.
Every layer comprises one element in a variety of accumulations lying one atop the other.
The visible bands of color and structure vary in thickness from a few millimeters to a mile or more and obtain their unique shapes through plate tectonics, volcanism and erosion.
