“Environments in Fused Glass” by Eric Hoffman

All proceeds from the sale of this collection will be donated to Save the Children's Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund. Your purchase can help provide children and families with immediate aid, such as food, water, and hygiene kits.

The fused glass is created in Iowa City, Iowa by Eric Hoffman. Eric is a research scientist at the University of Iowa whose investigations into lung disease is based on the formation of dynamic volumetric images. Thus, art is at the roots of his science and he has turned his penchant for art in all forms into a creative passion. It is often the lure of whatever is baking in the kiln that directs and inspires his days. The creations of Glass Fusion are driven by the bend of the glass or the melding of pieces that often surprise and inspire seemingly predestined paths. The melting glass in a 1.5K degree furnace provides a sense of the primitive that cyclically reflects into each successive piece.
