ELIZABETH RYLAND MEARS

 

Artist Statement

I have a sensual connection with glass.
As a child, its etheral hues drew me in.
As an adult, its spirit and complexity work their alchemy in my soul.
When cold, design and structure challenge.
When hot, the primitive call of fire, heat, sound and smell beckon.
I must know it well to follow where it leads.

I live with the forces and creatures of the hardwoods which surround me.
My dreams bring water from the wellspring of the unconscious.
Rocks and stones tell me their tales of old.
I love to laugh.
All these inspire my glass
to tell the stories that are entrusted to me.
