Grand Rapids Art Museum: A New State of Matter - Contemporary Glass
January 25, 2020 – October 5, 2020
Glass has been called a new state of matter because it is not purely a liquid, solid, or gas.

This quality makes it an ideal medium for a wide array of processes including blowing, kiln-forming, casting, and flame-working.
