Wayne Strattman’s The Art of Plasma is a unique and invaluable contribution to the future development of this art form. After acknowledging historical origins, he makes accessible detailed and necessary practical science for artists wishing to use plasma as a creative medium. He generously shares knowledge and experience gained over many decades of innovating and creating world-leading plasma art. This book could be viewed as a plasma apprenticeship in print.
Combining his background training in engineering with his love of sculpture and interest in the history of electricity—specifically those technologies using glass—Wayne not only taught himself the field without any formal glass training but also proceeded to pioneer many new techniques now intrinsic to his medium. Photos are taken from the book.
