New Work

Tilda Brown Swanson has been in the studio since the Fall completing trial pieces using new techniques combining powdered glass. The resulting smaller pieces are shown here as a Wall of Small.

Brown Swanson fires layers of powdered glass five to seven times creating intricate depth in each piece.

Brown Swanson is creating larger work based on the small pieces for a new series of biospheres, worlds within leaves and landscapes, to be available later in 2019.
