Hybrid: Glass + Metal

Flint Institute of Arts
1120 East Kearsley Street,
Flint, MI 48503
Glass and metal are an unexpected pairing—one fragile, and the other formidable—but they’re not as different as you may think. Both are formed with heat and cool into a fixed position. They are fundamental elements in our everyday life, from the gadgets we use to the buildings we inhabit. Both have been used in the creation of art for thousands of years.
