You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
— George Bernard Shaw

Phil Siegel, Born in 1972 in Petaluma California. My home and studio are now located in a small coastal town in Washington state. My lack of a formal apprenticeship in glass or a formal education in art, coupled with my extensive background in construction, have led me to my own, very personal, understanding of the medium and my unique approach to my work.

By adopting the rigid form language that I learned from designing architecture with the limitless flowing nature of glass, I constantly challenge myself to achieve a marriage between fantasy and structure, and to relate my deepest life experiences through the emancipation of my innermost spiritual, intellectual, and emotional self.
