Glass

David Patchen
Handblown Glass

 

David Patchen’s handblown glass is an exploration in patterns, colors and transparency created through multi-layered cane and murrinie (colored rods and patterned cross-sections of glass).  David's forms are graceful, three dimensional canvases.

Wes Hunting
Hunting Studio Glassworks

 

Wes Hunting began his studies in glass in the 1970s and has enjoyed the creativity inherent in the glass blowing process.   The fine details of his millefiori combined with his studies in coloration result in visually stunning creations that make full advantage of the dimension of light.

Scott Amrhein
High Cliff Studio

 

Scott Amrhein’s glass sculptures convey simplicity of design and proportion and illustrate the hands-on care of an artist who painstakingly creates timeless works of art. Scott combines natural and man-made elements into a work of art that many have found a Zen-like appeal. 

Josh Simpson


Glass is an alchemic blend of sand and metal oxides, combined with extraordinary blinding heat.  The result is a material that flows and drips like honey.  When its hot, glass is alive!  It moves gracefully and inexorably in response to gravity and centrifugal force.  It possesses an inner light and transcendent radiant heat that makes it simultaneously one of the most fascinating and one of the most frustrating materials to work. 

Steve Pflipsen and Katia Olivova

 

The husband and wife team of Steve Pflipsen and Katia Pflipsen Olivová marry the talents of glass blower with that of jewelry designer.  Steve and his team hand blow and hand sculpt each glass vessel. Katia ornaments the completed vessel through the lead free soldering of silver and copper wire directly onto the glass.  

Dalen Stevens


Recognized as a master of his craft, Dalen Stevens has been working continuously with clay for the past 40 years.  Dalen has worked with a broad spectrum of styles and techniques, developing innovative glazing and firing techniques and refining the craft of his art.

 

Dalen lives and works in Telluride, CO.
