When I think of contemporary artists who have influenced and shaped my vision the most, I go back to my illustration days.  Within the world of editorial and children’s book art there are a few people who stand out.  I was first introduced to many artists through the New York Times Book Review.  I was particularly drawn in by the line drawings of Henrik Drescher, Horacio Cardo, and Peter Sis; all with intensely personal, quirky, imaginative, and elegant styles.  They also have a lot of humor.  It was a thinking person’s art to grab the reader and make him dive into the article.  It is this aesthetic that I carry with me in my glass sculptures.  By incorporating found objects (or replications of) I am making a statement about the inner psyche and our relationship with the world. – Robert Bender
