Nikki O’Neill has been working with glass for over 30 years and currently uses kiln-forming techniques to create sculptures and vessels from glass powder and from recycled float glass.

Since retiring as a research scientist, she works full-time as a studio glass artist and educator, applying art and science to the exploration of life origins and nature’s creatures in marine habitats. O’Neill finds inspiration from the continuum of life and death, and the evolution of organisms from primitive, organic origins, to complex forms evolved over millions of years.
