Josh Simpson | Blue New Mexico Vases: "Years ago I was given the opportunity as an artist to photograph inside a nuclear power plant. One of the most amazing things I witnessed was the incredibly pure blue light of Cherenkov radiation emitted from the uranium fuel rods glowing within the core of the reactor. New Mexico glass is as close as I can get to the intense azure of that radioactive light! The New Mexico pattern is so varied that at times it reminds me of the sky on a perfect summer evening or a Hubble Space telescope image of one of the great nebula or I can imagine looking from above down at a stormy blue ocean with swirling currents and waves.

Metallic silver is the primary colorant in this glass. It is a true dichroic glass. In reflected light, it is peacock blue. In transmitted light it will often appear to be dark purple or even red."
