Having immersed himself in the traditional techniques of Italian glassblowing Jeff Thompson finds himself experimenting with his interpretations of this medium. His sculptures are an intelligent blend of contemporary, traditional and custom techniques that he further compliments with his diverse taste in modern sculpture. About the magic of working with glass Thompson says, "There is a hidden art to sculptures created in hot glass. It is the dance of balancing molten glass & coaxing it into existence, but this is a privileged view point like knowing how a magician performs his illusions."
