"I work with recycled glass because I feel that I am creating a balance in the environment. I am taking something out of the environment, a discarded material (a negative) and returning it back to the environment as a positive and a sense of balance is achieved." Cindy Coldiron  2010

And one of the best quotes by my favorite artist...
 
"Everything is sculpture. Any material, any idea without hindrance born into space, I consider sculpture."
Isamu Noguchi

ARTIST TECHNIQUE
 
No paints are used in the creation of each work of art.  Each splash of color in the work is created either by separately hand cut or broken pieces of glass and/or glass frit (fine crushed glass).  The wavy and/or straight lines in some of the works are created from spaghetti-like pieces of glass called glass "stringers." These stringers are bent and melted into the final fused glass creation. 
 
Fusing and casting involves the process of slowing kiln firing the glass multiple times in molds at high temperatures.
