In 2014, in a glass sand casting class at Pratt Glass in Seattle, WA, I cast a pyramid. It looked like the world’s most boring paperweight. Later I sanded down the edges so they were smooth and etched into it a maze design. This piece felt like the true art experience. I free handed the maze lines with a flex shaft under water. Because of the transparency of the glass under the water, the lines were essentially drawn blind. I didn’t plan out beforehand if the maze would be completable, I decided to let fate control that.  It turns out that this maze can, indeed, be finished.
