I believe glass is the most versatile medium on the market. And sand? Sand is its essence. We create clay, glass, even metal with fine particles (like sand). (By “we”, I am talking about us, the people that maunufacture consistent mediums to make art, and functional objects with.) Even in its found form, sand can create beautiful images.
I have an extreme obsession with the particles that create the perfect medium. I LOVED mixing up the powders to creat glaze, and various clay bodies. I never thought of spreading them out on a lit up table and projecting the images onto the wall. It turns out to be a highly respected art form. I am blown away, I would love to try it.
Oh! And, a thought… Isn’t it cool how artistic we all are. Be it for the sake of visual beauty, or just pure functional pleasure, or the art of the way we live our lives; people create so many uber cool things. One thing I REALLY like about my day job at Farnell Contracting; everybody there is so good at what they do. There really is an art to everything.
