Inspired by patterns in nature-such as branches, waves, fractals and flower petals -- Zimmerman has re-imagined the gallery space as a three-dimensional sketchbook showcasing his exquisite glass objects, illuminated hanging sculptures and mirrorized wall relief installations. In creating this collection Zimmerman employed a calculated naiveté and lexicon of elemental forms that belie his incomparable craftsmanship and stature as one of the preeminent glassblowers working today. Seemingly simple, the pieces each push the boundaries of both the material and the traditions of glassblowing,
creating a landscape of breathtaking, wholly unique forms.
