This expressive glass trout sculpture features soft, painterly greens reminiscent of the fish of Minnesota's lakes and rivers.
This piece is representational, but also brings to life the philosophy of fluidity the artist ascribes to. Andy's work is inspired by the natural world and the elements that make it up. Andy is an avid hunter and fisherman, which has inspired him to create this series of fish sculptures.

"...[Glass] induces elements of wind, water, fire, earth and gravity together in a creative process as taxing as it is fulfilling..." "...I have strived to develop a fluid philosophical approach that is open to mistakes, adaptation and change allowing for space to grow. The energy imparted into my work forged by interacting with the elements shines as an individual statement in each piece."
