About the artist - James Kingwell. Jim Kingwell was born and reared in Portland, Oregon. He attended Willamette University in Salem, and Portland State University.
He majored in ceramics with a particular interest in design and silicate chemistry. In 1971 he began blowing glass when he and a partner built a hot glass studio on the Oregon coast, where they used recycled glass.
In 1974 Jim began making glass from its raw ingredients. Jim's work has appeared in shows internationally. His new work offers a fabulous array of colors and forms.
The remarkable light-gathering quality of the clear glass energizes every color used with it, while the responsive nature of the molten material sustains the delicate balance of spontaneity and control integral to off-hand blown glass design. James Kingwell brings over forty-three years of experience to his classic, simple forms, while his colors run the gamut from serene blues and greens to the vigor of his "Bad Hair Day" series.Often centering on classic simplicity, Jim loves the soothing curves of a symmetrical vase and often chooses uncomplicated, subdued palettes so that nothing disturbs these meditations in glass. Educated as a potter, glass has afforded him opportunities for artistic expansion, experiment and expression. This item is in the category "Pottery & Glass\Cookware, Dinnerware & Serveware\Bowls".
