Video: Glass Gift
Release Date: 01-14-2009
When UVM students returned from the semester break there was a large, colorful gift awaiting them in the Davis Center. The new glass sculpture over-hanging the center's third floor Chikago Landing is the work of Ethan Bond-Watts '09, a project commissioned last year by the Class of 2008 as their parting gift to the university.
Four years as an apprentice and travel to work with a number of the world's top glass artists preceded Bond-Watt's undergraduate study in UVM's Environmental Program. In describing his concept for the Davis Center sculpture, he says that the piece strives to evoke the intermeshed swirl of the natural world.
