The Washington Glass Studio was chosen from among 10 candidates to create a piece of artwork in honor of the World Year of Physics 2005. Michael Janis, Tim Tate, and Erwin Timmers presented an idea for a “touchable,” thoughtful piece of art. They worked with us to create something that not only has an aesthetic value, but that highlights the importance of the science. The final result is A New World View.

The Washington Glass Studio, located in Washington DC, opened in 2002. The philosophy of the studio is to “balance creativity with construction.” Artists at the studio work with many different mediums such as metal, blown glass, fused glass, ceramic, neon, and deep relief cast glass. The Washington Glass Studio also offers classes to the public in sculptural development, architectural glass, lighting design, dry plaster casting, and many other areas.
