"Looking at his recent work, it is apparent that Simpson's personal aesthetic and passion reside in the cosmic universe and the natural world. Like fragments from the big bang and pieces of nature's offspring, Simpson's sculptures capture the process of making, thereby reinforcing their implicit sense of life. The magic and alchemy inherent in molten glass, with its gorgeous and perennially cool appearance, provide Simpson with the means to express the wonder and mystery of the universe. In Simpson's glass, idea, technique and form are truly integrated and become one."
