    I was smitten the moment I discovered John Bassett's recycled glass art. It's witty yet elegant and he has such a wonderful talent for creating texture and enhancing the natural colors and light play of the glass he incorporates in his pieces. He is without doubt one of the most talented recycled glass artists out there.
