Web Description: 
Chase is a well-known Pacific Northwest sculptor and video artist. She worked with glass for the first time as an artist in residence at Pilchuck Glass School. Later, she made a video about her glass sculptures, photographing the glass in an untraditional way that emphasized its kinetic properties of color and light. The Museum collects work by artists coming to glass from outside the medium, as well as by artists whose primary medium is glass. This is the first work by Chase to enter the Museum’s collection.
