Dan Dailey became fascinated with what he considers the magic” of glassblowing while at Philadelphia College of Art. He often incorporates other materials and will bend or penetrate the surface of the glass to play on its brittleness and solidity. Much of Dailey’s work is constructed from brightly colored plates of glass; this two-dimensional quality and the humor often found in his pieces recall Dailey’s early aspirations to be a cartoonist.
