Marble Sentinels

Glass, 23 by 39 inches.
Frame, 32 by 46 inches.

While taking a drive that passed near to Marble, Colorado, I was struck by the site of large, abandoned chunks of marble in a section of an old quarry that had been grown over with forest.

I first used the image in Marble Kodama (Op. 505) (which is currently on loan to the AIEP at the American Embassy in Kuala Lumpur), and decided I liked it so much, I would recreate it in a larger piece.

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.
