Daniel J. Scogna
Glass artist Daniel Scogna references details within the landscape to create a visual journal with his blown glass vessels. Leaves are a favorite form because they can suggest a particular time of year or a specific type of tree that may be indigenous to a certain area. Through each suggestion of a specific time and place, the artist documents the events of his life.
Scogna creates his unique textures through processes he has adapted from enameling techniques. This non-traditional approach allows him to draw imagery onto the hot glass by hand and vary the surface texture by applying color during different stages of the blowing process.
