Artist Wayne Strattman transforms electricity into light through the mediums of blown glass, rare gases, and custom built electronics. Internally illuminated with plasma, his sculptures synthesize art, science, and invention.

Captured inside flameworked forms made from borosilicate glass, and ionized to produce plasma, different inert gases such as neon, krypton and xenon are made to light in a range of colors. Depending on the pressure of these gas fills, and the voltage and frequency of the electricity applied, they exhibit a range of visual and kinetic effects, from a brilliant glow to moving filaments that travel throughout the interior space of the glass and also interact with touch. Wayne has developed a mastery of these materials over decades of research and exploration as a leading innovator in plasma lighting technologies.
