ArttoHold's Shop Announcement

Welcome to my Etsy Shop, Art To Hold, where you'll find unique pieces that are visually and tactually distinct. Small works of art that will enhance your life in ways that a purely visual display object cannot. No two pieces I make are the same, each is made as a totally different thing, which means that when you choose the piece that is right for you, it becomes yours and yours alone.Tthere is not another like it, nor will there be. I have worked over a long career in art with stained glass, fused glass, blown glass, painting, and pottery, and love what I do. I hope that shows in my work. I have sold my studio that I had for 38 years and am currently in a new studio with no glass furnace, so I am not currently making any new blown glass, any glass offered is what I made in my old studio. I am currently focused on pottery and painting. I am not connected to Twitter or Facebook, but please feel free to contact me here, with an Etsy convo, with anything that is on your mind or any questions you might have. I will respond to all as quickly as possible.

The reason for the name "Art to Hold" is somewhat self explanatory, pieces of art not only to be viewed but to hold and feel, not just to stand back and look at. It seems to me that, more and more, art is larger and larger, and meant for museum display only. It loses it's human scale and appeal, and to my mind, it's reason for existence. Etsy has attracted me and my work because it is a refreshing change, art by individual artists on a human scale, offered to people who are looking for art outside the museum experience. My art and the art that I wish to make has always been on a human scale, meant for us and the homes we live in. I also very much like the direct artist/collector contact, where direct communication can easily and quickly take place, and the buyer can have any questions or concerns, or information sought, answered quickly and at any time by the artist, the person who has made the piece being asked about. So, here I am, offering what I make, and available for any questions you may have. Please never hesitate to contact me (George) with any questions. (I am easily reached by the Etsy "contact seller" or "send convo" system, or at glassartist70 [!at] hotmail.com).

Also I like to mention that, as many on Etsy are, I am an artist who makes what I offer. I work alone, and the pieces are made by me alone, not made by others. And it is me who stands behind everything I make, and who you will speak with whenever contact is made. I guarantee completely your complete and utter happiness with what you purchase,and will very quickly refund your money if you wish to return an item for any reason at all. Like most small businesses or individual artists, as opposed to larger businesses, you will never, ever, have to talk with someone else in an effort to try and reach me.
