Josh Simpson first experimented with glass when he was a student at Hamilton College in 1970. Over the last 40 years, his art has evolved as he experimented and learned from making countless mistakes. He has found inspiration in NASA images of Earth and other natural phenomena.
While he has been successful creating unique goblets, vases and bowls, perhaps his greatest satisfaction is derived from his planets: luminous glass spheres encasing kaleidoscopic landscapes, underwater scenes and vistas of outer space that reflect the Earth and the vastness and complexity of the universe.
His work is in the permanent collections of many museums.3" A176
