“Beauty can be found in many different places on our planet,” said Thomas Spake, “from the sandy ocean floor, to mountainous peaks, and from the arid deserts to the lush jungles. I find glass to be a very impressionable material. It has the ability to be transparent, translucent or opaque, giving it the capacity to mimic the world around us: water, clouds, rock, forests and mountains.” I love the approach Spake takes to create his art. He travels, he sees and he experiences. Then, he photographs. Only when back in the studio does he reveal what that inspiration has bought forth. The result is nature in glass, expressed.
