May 2003: Matthew Stewart
Matthew Stewart's show of blown glass work is titled the "Modular Anatomical Series". The free flowing glass sculptures are composed of pieces that fit together in what he calls "sensual confrontation". When coupled, these forms create balance, as well as tension. Years of working glass in the rigid symmetry of vessel making has led Matthew to explore the freedom of hot glass. His amorphous shapes have fluid lines which shows the rhythm of the glass.
