This thesis has been formed in two major segments. The first portion deals with glass information including processes and techniques. The second addresses my work in terms of personal issues, manner of approach, symbolism, composition, visual eclecticism and internal source of imagery. The subjects dealt with in the two sections are mutually modified in their working relationship. Each yields to the pressure of the other as I constantly want to do more than I am able. I have separated them for the sake of clarity, as I conceive them; the first being the means and the second the end. Even within the context of this thesis the total segregation of the primary subjects is impossible. Processes are selected, changed and created to suit desires. Technical limitations effect the movement from concept to physical existence.
