About the Artist

Sean Albert (Tukwila) received 2009 GAP Award funding to help offset the costs of polishing a large glass sculpture. Recent progress in his work includes developing a technique to suspend colored threads of glass in a solid mass of clear glass, and hand pulling molten glass into 40-foot long strands that are later broken into many three-inch long pieces. Sean's work often attempts to use glass to capture and manipulate light, freeze time or movement, like a three-dimensional snap shot of what the material was like when it was liquid.
