A stream formed high in the mountains by a glacier settles into a blue-green pool near a stand of birch trees. Even though it’s spring, you can still see the melting snow at the edge of the water.
Roger Thomas was born in Los Angeles, California in 1951. He began working with stained glass in the 1970’s, and by the 1980’s was developing his own innovative techniques with fused glass. After moving to Portland, OR to take a job at his favorite glass factory in 1988, he established his second studio and began to “make things” in earnest.
