Incantatrice (Sorceress) by Toots Zynsky

Toots Zynsky builds amorphous, glass vessels that defy categorization, her objects inhabiting a region where painting, sculpture, and the decorative arts meet. In this interview, Zynsky discusses the early days of the American studio glass movement when she was a student of Dale Chihuly’s at the Rhode Island School of Design and at Pilchuck Glass School. Zynsky also gives insight into her ideas about color and technique and the inspiration and insight she’s gained from her extensive travels.
