My sculptures are made from tubes and solid rods of borosilicate glass that are heated in the flame of torch to several thousand degrees. With many years of practice and when conditions are right almost any shape can be attained.

Colors are applied in the form of colored rods and crushed glass called frit. I've developed a method of layering opaque and transparent colors that makes very life like leaves for plants. I'm also an amateur botanist with an eye for detail.

While glass is quite a strong material the very nature of my subject matter makes them fragile. It takes all my skill to make many individual components into one continuance piece of glass. One bad weld ruins the whole thing. After 18 years I'm pretty good at it. I seek to make my pieces as strong as they can be while maintaining the inherent delicacy of the flora and fauna I'm so passionate about.

Mahalo, Jupiter Nielsen
