Josh Simpson | Glass Tektite Sculptures: “I began making Tektite glass (from the Greek tektos, meaning "molten") years ago, when a friend did a spectrographic analysis of a type of meteorite composed of glass, known scientifically as tektite.

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.”
