Fact No. 287. (Published on 10/30/2005)

Accidental elements…

"Glass has many accidental elements, especially in the blowing process. People usually have an image of glass as hard and cool. But in the hot shop, glass is moving and soft. Even if I have a complete plan for my work, sometimes the glass of its own accord becomes more interesting. Apparent failures often reveal interesting aspects of glass. I stopped trying to control everything, and paid more attention to these accidental and unexpected elements."
