Dancing in the fires describes how I bend neon tubes because I bend free form in the air not to a pattern on the table. As the glass starts heating over the natural gas, I watch to see how the glass is moving. Some times it goes my way and other times I follow the glass. The goal is to create a shape that speaks to me and reflects my thoughts at the time. Each tube I bend is unique because there is no pattern. I see the abstract forms as a representation of fluidity and change; and as a way to see neon from a different perspective.
“When I look at a neon tube, I don’t see a sign even if it is. I see a luminous glow. I want to share the beauty and playfulness of neon.” – Linda Sue Price
