From the role of mentor to student, Tom and Jeremy have developed a similar ideology when it comes to working with glass. Their work displays the use of color and movement in an abstract way. Though the process of blowing glass they take a fluid material and add color or texture to create art that has an optical quality to it. The interaction between glass and light is similar to the interactions between the glass blowing team working to bring an idea to life. The Team is a community of students, artists, and teachers coming together to share ideas and techniques. From this relationship Jeremy Hansen and Tom Kreager have evolved from mentor to student, to collaborators, to great friends.
