Ron Lohrding is a retired PhD Mathematician/Scientist. Fused glass design emphasizing dichroic glass is his art medium. He is stimulated by the dichroic brilliance of the glass and uses the aesthetically appearing ancient golden ratio and the mathematically related Fibonacci sequence for proportions in his design. The golden ratio (sometimes called the Devine or natural ratio) was used a great deal in the art of Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. The eye pleasing use of rectangles by architect Frank Lloyd Wright is also inspiring. He uses shapes, sizes, colors and reflectance to try to produce visional poetry in the creation of unique Wall Art, Wall Crosses, Mirrors, Picture Frames, Trays, Plates, and eye catching Pendants
