Where We Were When
Two kiln formed glass panels.
Frame, 72 by 34 inches total.
In a sparse glade, rain falls, slashing through snow and shadow. This pairing of a horizontal panel tumbling into its vertical counterpart lends a sense of movement to the piece, creating a tension and balance that expands and strengthens the characteristics of both.

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.
