"My works of art are dedicated to creating architectural environments and sculpture that illuminate with the light of nature. My intent is to integrate form and color as elements of transformation and healing.
The essential element of my work is glass.
I work on private and public art commissions as well as installations with the intention of forming a bridge between art and nature, nature and humanity, humanity and spirit. " - Hilary Harrison
