Artist Statement by Dante Germain:
Design intrigues me because of the influence it has on the way we feel, what we communicate or how we act.
Glass intrigues me because of the fragile, unforgiving but rewarding process it presents. A medium that poses continuous exploration with ongoing challenges.
Pattern intrigues me because of the arrangement of lines, whether organic or methodical, the viewers eye can be moved through or along the work. The fluidity of glass in its molten state gives me the ability to twist and manipulate linear patterns into a three-dimensional canvas.
