Artist Roger Thomas visualizes the world through his glass landscapes. While he considers himself a painter, he has chosen to work in glass because he craves the challenges and depth the medium provides him. He thrives in Oregon’s expansive array of native flora, drawing inspiration from the relationship between the natural world and the created environment.

His renditions of nature are idealizations that seek to express the spirit of nature’s beauty.  In speaking of two of his pieces, Garden Gateway (a fall scene in the woods) and Natsukashi (an evocative abstract), Roger says, “Gardens are where I draw solace and strength to translate into my work. These images are idealized impressions of what the Japanese call natsukashi, a longing for a place or time that never was. I feel that way quite often. How amazing that there would be a word for that.”
