Featured Artists


Illusive Light
by Jon Kuhn

I am honored to present this stunning hanging glass sculpture from the archives of North Carolina artist Jon Kuhn. The craftsmanship, beauty and architectural sophistication of this piece makes it a true collector’s item. Rarely have I offered a more extraordinary piece.

Illusive Light by Jon Kuhn, 17 x 24 x 6.5″


Mandara by Lino Tagliapietra, 26.5 x 13 x 7″

by Lino Tagliapietra

I think of this piece as a classic Lino Tagliapietra. Simple yet elegant in form, highly sophisticated cane work, gorgeous colors… This piece has it all.



by Harry Pollitt

I love the organic, flowing form of this cast glass sculpture by Santa Fe artist Harry Pollitt. The use of negative space makes this piece all the more remarkable.

Blue Harmony by Alex Bernstein,
19″ high x 26″ wide

Blue Harmony
by Alex Bernstein

Here is an outstanding example of Alex Bernstein’s latest direction. This stunningly beautiful piece is all about repetition, rhythm and harmony. Alex is one of those artists who is constantly reinventing his work and once again he has outdone himself with this piece




by Nancy Callan

This colorful piece was just finsihed by Seattle based artist, Nancy Callan. I love the intensity of the colors, the playful murini and the overall dramatic presence of Nancy’s latest creation.

Calypso by Nancy Callan, 13.5 x 9.5 x 7.5″



Thank you for taking a few moments to enjoy some of the world’s finest glass art. I look forward to staying in touch.
