The rich organic colors from our favorite palette are manipulated into complex designs, which are then sand etched and sealed with a permanent lustrous satin finish."
Danielle Blade and Stephen Gartner combine their individual ideas, techniques, and experiences to create original works in hand blown and sculpted glass. The inspiration for their work begins with their mutual fascination with the many vessels and sculptural objects revered in the rituals and ceremonies of both primitive and contemporary cultures.
Natural elements such as bone, wood, vines and rock formations combine with their highly original color palette to inform their signature designs. Their work merges traditional hand blown techniques with innovative color application and original sculpting techniques.
