Daniel J. Scogna

"My work embodies a fascination with seasonal changes on the landscape. I find the textures and patterns found in nature a constant inspiration."

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.
