Portals came about because Tektite glass intrigued me so much. I have always been interested by the geology and surprise of geodes. Geodes are very ordinary looking rocks, but if you cut or break one open there is often a fantastic interior of colorful crystals that have formed over the eons. Portals that I make have a rough, dark, even gross exterior with a perfectly smooth window cut in the side. Portals to me are like looking inside a geode or maybe like being in a submarine or spaceship and having only one tiny window through which to look out on the hugeness of the ocean or galaxy around you.
