He specializes in vases, bowls, and sculptural glass and is available for custom projects and commissions. CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO FROM A RECENT INSTALLATION. Here are some recent projects I have completed.. One of my favorite applications of color use in the blowing process is working with glass canes.
All these bowls are made with the techniques of pulling and fusing glass canes to create the patterns. Here are some pictures of my Mom and I pulling some canes. I really love this process... It's exciting stretching molten glass across the driveway.
It is really important that the glass be at just the right temperature, because if the glass is too hot. It falls to the ground and if its not hot enough it won't pull. Depending on the type of canes we pull, sometimes we pull them over 100 feet! If "signature required" does not work for you, PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU PAY.
