Op.532 Turquoise Forest Wb

Turquoise Forest glass artwork by Roger V Thomas

Where We Were When

Turquoise Forest

Glass, 19 by 15 inches.

Turquoise Forest explores clever graphics and my (somewhat) ubiquitous collage technique. The narrow test palette worked surprisingly well, creating a dense, yet well-lit clearing in the forest.

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.
