MASTERY OF INTENTION AND FLOW: A FUTURE WORTH HAVING
G. Michael Smith is a creator. A practitioner of uncommon sense, much of his work is guided by the rich and diverse experiences gained through travels around our world. Michael has learned the importance of learning new knowledge, reflecting on knowledge of old, and understanding that one’s world truly expands when standing in a new experience. With a focus on consciousness and being mindful, G. Michael Smith plays on the structures and beauty found in the surrounding world; organic and otherwise. His organization, “Creativity Unleashed”, advocates transformational results in art, technology and relationships, by learning from what nature has already figured out.
Michael began working with glass at Jacksonville University in 2008 and now lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico as a working glass artist and instructor. He uses multiple techniques to manipulate the material including blowing glass, hot/sand casting, kiln forming, and cold working. Glass elements are also incorporated into mixed media projects. Michael hopes his work will inspire others to journeys of their own.
