GREG FIDLER

ARTIST STATEMENT
The familiar essence of glass is derived from a manufactured utilitarian need. Processes in hand forming glass undermine these attributes and in effect give my work purpose.

It is my desire to produce sculpture that communicates progression while paying respect to traditional processes and their survival in the present. My ideas owe more to natural forms and my deference for the material than to consciousness obscurity.
