Josh Simpson | Glass Tektite Portals: "I make portals because I've always been intrigued by geodes. It's hard to imagine that such ordinary looking "rocks" that took eons to form, can be cut open to reveal the most amazing sparkling interiors.
My portal pieces have a rough exterior with a perfectly smooth window cut to reveal an entire universe within."
The rough exterior is made of Josh's own Tektite glass, which he creates in his studio. "Tektite meteor glass is a combination of silica and a melange of metallic oxides that are abundant in the universe. It's profoundly different from the smooth, voluptuous crystal I usually work with. It's rough, dark, bubbly, and was never meant to be blown. By combining the right proportions of raw materials, I was able to re-create meteorite glass in my studio, and I started to make my own Tektites.”
