Harold Edgerton has always been a photographer I looked up to while meandering through high school photo classes and art school critiques. I still remember my art teacher's jaw dropping when I told her that I didn't consider myself an artist when she had asked where I saw myself going as one.

Despite the friction of art school, it did teach me to consider all surroundings when creating anything. Jeff Zimmerman's Soft Explosion, inspired by Harold Edgerton's 'Milk Drop Coronet', kept that in mind when creating this limited edition glass sculpture.
