Art Glass | Architectural Digest Home Design 2015

Art Glass | Architectural Digest Home Design 2015
Art Glass at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show was inspirational this year. This is my second year visiting the show in New York City at Pier 94. Most of my time was spent within the Made Section of the show, visiting with several glass artists. My personal favorites from the show, demonstrate uniqueness in color and design.   1. Jaime Harris Studios: Amazing technique that is shown  within his Encalmo Orb Vessels. “The Incalmo vessels series represents an ever-changing examination of color contrast within a more sculptural format. This work is as tied to American Modernist painting as...

Making of a Glass Tree Vase

Making of a Glass Tree Vase
After 25 years of creating the Tree Series, I wanted to share what goes into the making of a glass tree vase. Each glass vessel created within our glassblowing studio, is made with a  team of three. As shown below, Bernard Katz and our glassblowing team are working on  the Bellied Root Vessel. At the temperature of 2100 degrees, the hot glass bits  are attached to the glass vessel creating  three-dimensional roots.                   The blown glass vase is placed in the  annealing ovens. The annealing ovens slowly cool down the work to room temperature....

Abstract Imagery in Glass

Abstract Imagery in Glass
The Infusion Series by Jaime Harris Abstract imagery in glass art is beautifully orchestrated by Jaime Harris. I am drawn to Jaime’s Infusions Series. The Infusion Series are one-of-a-kind glass sculptures with multiple layers of glass color.   The amount of work that Jaime Harris puts into each sculpture would  take   weeks to design and create. Jaime describes his process as, “These one-of-a-kind pieces begin as solid sculptures, similar to the Infusion sculptures in my studio line, and are then kiln-cast into thick blocks or panels, and carved and polished. These are paintings done in...
