Toots Zynsky, who trained at the Rhode Island School of Design is one of the most international personalities of contemporary glassmaking. In the early 1980s, she perfected a new technique of stretching strings of coloured glass, then forming these strings into disks by cold flattening. Finally, thermoforming these disks resulted in hollow complex forms that often evoke pleats similar to textile and match with very rich polychrome effects.
