Web Description: 
Douglas uses a limited palette of black and white glass for her objects, which are engraved with subtle marks and lines reminiscent of patterns in landscape. Her works reference things found in nature, such as smooth rocks and acorns, and by the simple and minimal forms of mid-20th-century Italian glass design.
