These glass sculptures are made of Pyrex, a borosilicate glass. My project in Antarctica is to gain understanding of ice and its relationship to glass. With the assistance of Art Quinn, I will be gathering ice textures and photographs in order to birng them home and translate into icebergs of glass.

Water ice is a crystal, a rather unique crystal that expands approximately 4% in volume rather than contracting with cold.

Glass is an emorphous solid that only looks like a crystal to the untrained eye.

Both can be beautiful, but they are very different materials.
