The Time of Waves
One-of-a-Kind Fine Art
Available in our retail shop

We track time in many different ways, often referencing significant moments in our history. In "Tides" I want to capture the movement of waves and the slow but inevitable change that occurs with repetition. In order to reinforce that message I constructed the piece by pulverising a pre-cast glass assemblage into smaller and smaller parts, using time in the ball mill to express this disintegration.


We offer unique, custom high-quality glass installations that can be produced and installed quickly in your home, business or institution. Stop by our studio to view glass options and discuss your project or view our vast product options online at potekglass.com.

Art in the World
Andrew Shea
Andrew Shea's work consists of blown glass characterized by vivid colors in strong forms.

In his work, Shea captures the motion of hot glass. While the colors and techniques of glassblowing are fascinating, the real joy comes from working with glass once it has cooled. He loves handling the glass, whether it involves surface manipulation or working with the shapes.

Andrew Shea began blowing glass at the University of Minnesota in the early seventies. Shea began working the glass to produce glass fish and perfume bottles that mimic the transparency, opacity, and fluidity of
hot glass.
"I have been working in glass since college in the seventies. I use the fluidity of glass to create forms that represent the motion of the material at working temperatures."
