Skytree Smith

Glass Artist


My work is influenced by and often reflects nature. As the planet is, my work is either bright, colourful, and whimsical or earthy and grounded. In many cases, my work does not resemble glass, but rather glazed pottery. It is an interesting thing to alter the chemical make-up and therefore appearance of glass based on the composition of my working flame.
