Pre­ston Sin­gle­tary’s con­tem­po­rary blown glass in­ter­pre­ta­tions of Tlin­git berry bas­kets al­low us to view these util­i­tar­ian forms from a new per­spec­tive. His use of color and the translu­cent qual­ity in­her­ent in glass give these works ad­di­tional vis­ual ap­peal and per­haps even so­licit a new view­ing au­di­ence due to the far-reach­ing ap­peal of glass. Sin­gle­tary in­cor­po­rates ab­stracted geo­met­ric de­signs that ref­er­ence el­e­ments in na­ture and an­i­mals forms that may or may not be as­so­ci­ated with his clan/crest sym­bols. The Tlin­git Cu­rio Shelf that he has be­come known for creat­ing fea­tures a cu­rated as­sort­ment of five bas­kets of vary­ing shapes and sizes dis­played on a cus­tom wall-mounted shelf de­signed by the artist to en­sure op­ti­mal dis­play.
