About Acquiring Knowledge

Stacked wafers of glass frit form a textured pattern in this wall relief by Cheryl Wilson Smith. Wilson Smith's work is created by forming minute glass particles, known as frit, into small, thin sheets from which she creates detailed sculptured objects. These castings are technically challenging, using a method similar to 3D printing. The finished work evokes fragility through its material and yet strength in its subject of moving ice.
