Inside the lobby of the Scottsdale Center for the Arts is a beautiful artistic piece called Glass House. It's by glass artist and sculptor Therman Statom. Statom was drawn to art at an early age and at one time worked with Dale Chihuly where he learned the limitless possibilities in glass blowing. He has since made a career of glass sculpting and more importantly teaching the joys of art to a younger generation.
The glass house consists of panels of glass, some painted, some frosted, all fused together to form a unit you can walk right through. Within the glass walls are more glass objects, some created and some found objects. It really is a beautiful piece. Click here if you want to learn more about the artist.
