“Creation is a continual and evolutionary process, constantly digesting and reevaluating past experiences and current perspectives. My work has always been deliberately enigmatic and mysterious. I constantly strive to generate a strange and curious quality that both tantalizes and challenges the viewer to develop his own response system. The work must have an existence of its own if it is to have any real significance.”

Throughout David Huchthausen's involvement with glass, he has always focused on the qualities that are unique to this medium. Through his abstract compositions, he continues to explore how glass can materialize color. Those geometric arrangements of often dichroic colored glasses are transformed by light--sometimes focused through lenses--to project still other compositions through and in the clear crystal blocks that comprise his forms.
