About SwishThis elegant glass wall sculpture was handmade by the Canadian artist Cheryl Wilson Smith. She layers and stacks paper thin fragments of ground glass called frit to create these curved pieces. Its warm white colour is reminiscent of winter’s ice and snow that covers the rugged landscape of her Northern Ontario town.
“I strive to reflect nature’s graceful strength in my work.” Cheryl Wilson Smith
