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 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.”
