‘I have always been excited by improbable stacked forms that seek to defy gravity. I continue to enjoy living on the edge of what is technically possible. Working with glass, I am frequently concerned with how to add elements until I achieve a composite form that resonates with abundant meanings. Buff Sandy is a body builder on a beach, pleased with his acrobatic prowess.’ (Tom Moore, 2013)
