His work has a uniqueness that is fascinating to all.”
Neil A. Armstrong Astronaut Apollo 11 Commander
It’s a small miracle, breathing life into glass. Josh Simpson endows his Planets with the depth and detail of the universe itself – images of earthly, aquatic and celestial realms.
Combining exquisite skill with artistic flights of fancy, Simpson harnesses this incredibly beautiful and impossibly difficult substance to express the wonders he beholds.
In his hands, ours is truly a small world.
