I find that my work is not influenced by a single source but by many small inspirations. Very early on when I was researching kilns, I talked to local artists and they were helpful and inspired me to buy the correct equipment. Around this time I saw an image of a glass sculpture that impressed me. It was a series of clear, slumped, large glass squares leaning on top of one another to form a large piece.

I later found out the information from the artist. “The work you remember is Path, seen at the Tucson Museum in 1983, but first shown at OK Harris Gallery in NYC in 1981.  It was 2 ft x 60 ft x 5 ft and simply stacked bent glass going from almost horizontal to vertical. It was a reference to don’t go up the garden path, because the work which looked so innocent, was a trap” (Mary Shaffer, Artist). I was interested in the technical aspects of the work and also the narrative quality of the title.  I have continued to view her work with technical interest and enjoying the narrative quality of each piece.  Also now I am able to visit with the artist.  – Emily Brock 2018
