Love the vase. Already had one I received as a gift. Was thrilled to find the actual craftsman and purchase another piece of glass art. They look great in my windows!

About

Visionary Glass Arts From the Ground Up

Fifteen years ago, while living in Fort Collins, Colorado I started working with some glass blower friends of mine. I immediately became enamored with the beauty and complexity of glass. Through the the years, I have taken a workshop here and there, but besides that I am completely self taught.

I sell my work in over 10 different galleries, as well as here on Etsy. I also participate in 12 different regional art & craft shows a year. The business has now become family run with the help of my wife. We live in Asheville, North Carolina, with our two young children, lively dog, and four chickens.

”Art is a necessity in every person’s life; it takes us away from the mundane and into the world of infinite possibility. If nothing else the goal is to get the observer to pause, even for the briefest moment, it is in that moment the magic happens and the person can choose to see the potential in themselves and in us all.”

A little bit about my glass. All of my work is signed, dated and handmade by me. I create hand blown, lampwork, borosilicate/pyrex glass. Each piece is individually hand blown using a torch, my breath, and gravity. The torch burns in excess of 2500 degrees Fahrenheit, with a gas mixture of propane and oxygen. When the glass is molten I shape it with my breath, gravity, and other rods of clear glass. I actually draw with colored glass rods layering and melting them into the clear glass until I get the design and color I am trying to create.

All glass color is made from metals and minerals from the earth. There are no paints, dyes, or glazes. Every color reacts differently to the slightest variance in temperature, so working with color is a delicate process. Upon completion the piece is placed into a kiln to anneal at 1050 degrees overnight, furthering the strength and durability of the glass. The glass I use Borosilicate glass is the same glass formula as Pyrex glass, so it is a very strong material and made to last.

I work hard to make beautiful, interesting, and unique pieces of art. Something you will love and can become a family heirloom!
