Susan Longini Kilnformed Glass Art

Susan Longini uses a kilnformed glass process called Pâte de Verre, literally "glass paste". With glass powders and small frit, she creates hundreds of elements that are fired, then arranged and re-fired to create larger art installations.

My particular interest is transition, the daily transitions of sunrise and sunset, or the change of seasons. While these are all aspects of the natural world, they are also metaphors for cyclical changes and transitions in our lives.
