Visual Delights: Toots Zynsky


In the December issue of AmericanStyle magazine, there is a small photograph of the most exquisite glass I've seen in a long time, created by the American glass artist Toots Zynsky. I had to find out more about it. In an online biographical entry I read, Toots said as a child she found "the windows were more interesting than most sermons" in church (I would've agreed with her there!), which was how she became fascinated with glass and the play of light upon it. Here are some of works she's created with fine glass threads. I just love gradations of colors, the shapes and the play of light across them. Enjoy!
