Jiri Harcuba, a renowned artist and educator, is known for his simple, yet elegant, portraits in glass. He treats all his subjects in a similar fashion, using spare sculptural cuts and subtle optical effects to create their individual profiles. His student and emerging artist, April Surgent, takes a photographic and painterly approach to engraving, using her own photography--many of urban environments--as her image sources. After fusing sheets of glass, she "develops" the images by grinding the glass to reveal the neutral and colorful underlayers.
