Erica Straus

Stained Glass Artist

Reflective and thoughtful, the medium of glass art is used to investigate the intricacies of nature and express the beauty discovered there. While using realistic colors and patterns, she is often moved to incorporate iridescent glass to express what she sees and feels. her work leads the viewer to embrace the beauty of nature through the unnatural medium of glass. This provides a depth of perception, by playing with color, hue and transparency, drawing forth appreciation for both the radiance and subtlety of nature, as captured in each piece.
