I am fascinated with clear glass. Years ago, I made a series of crystal sculptures that were meant to be illuminated in helium neon laser light. These pieces utilized large trapped air bubbles to magnify the brilliant laser light; the air bubble became a lens. Unfortunately these pieces were never exhibited because of potential eye damage from the reflected laser. Bubble Vases and Paperweights, along with the Phantom Paperweight series incorporate elements of the Laser series.
