Lustre features studio glass art by a variety of renowned artists, each capturing the beauty and uniqueness of such a versatile medium with their own interpretation.
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.
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.
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.
