Jerri Bartholomew Glass: About


I am a microbiologist who uses glass as a medium to explore the natural world. Science strips away the layers to reveal what is beneath, while in art, I am building up layers to create something new. I'm interested in the connections between the arts and science, and in exploring how these disciplines can inform each other. They each draw from a creative impulse, a desire to ask questions, to experiment, and to learn from trial and error.
