Kait Rhoads:"In my art-making I have always been attracted to color and pattern. When I discovered glass, I was drawn to its transparency and vibrant colors. Through time and exposure to other glass artist’s manner of working I came to see the vast potential of glass as a canvas for complex design. My color and pattern combinations are inspired by a reverence for nature. To render natural imagery such as feathers, seaweed, and cherry blossoms, I use the traditional Italian patterning techniques of cane and murrine. The fluid nature of the created line illustrates how obstacles can inhibit or enhance movement; this aspect of melting and fusing the colors infuses each piece with rhythmic movement and organic growth."
