About the Artist
Ron Schuster's interest in hot glass work was spawned by a desire for a more spontaneous and uninhibited mode of expression within the glass medium. After more than two decades as a creator of stained glass windows, Ron brings a wealth of experience with color and design to his newest venture.
The glass which Ron includes in his Dichroic Series of paperweights has been coated with up to 50 micro-thin layers of exotic metals such as titanium and zirconium. These metals are applied during an advanced manufacturing process involving high energy, instense heat and near total vacuum.
The result is an optical effect in which reflected light produces various crisp and vibrant colors when viewed from different angles. This combined with the contrasting black background and stratigically placed bubbles produces an elegant and mysterious artistic effect.
