Two exhibits at Museum of Glass, Tacoma, WA

Michael Taylor is widely renowned for his cut and laminated glass works, geometric constructions inspired by everything from subatomic particle to music. He is very analytic artist with deep interest in science and mathematics. I really liked that in the exhibit there were not only his perfectly finished works but the artist gave a possibility for viewers to peak in his creative thinking, experiments and wooden models of his glass works. 

Albert Paley in his works combines glass with stainless steel. He says:
"I am interested in the potential of glass as a sculptural material, not as something being framed by metal. I want glass and metal to be equal partners. Glass pairs beautifully with steel because it creates a dialog of opposites."
