Greetings! I hope this finds you and your loved ones well and enjoying the summer. Christine and I just returned from a wonderful camping trip at a lake in Colorado. This month I am sharing some great glass sculptures from some of my favorite artists. I look forward to your comments and questions.

Double Lens
by John Kiley

Just today I received this image of a new piece by Seattle glass artist John Kiley. I love both the form of this piece and the subtle color palette.



Lemon Giverny Dusk
by Stephen Powell

This piece by the late Kentucky artist Stephen Powell is from one of my favorite series, the Screamers. Stephen’s mastery of blown glass and the murinne technique in particular is almost unparalleled in the world of glass art and this vibrant piece is no exception.

Lemon Giverny Dusk by Stephen Powell, 44.75 x 21.75 x 12″


Green Stack by Alex Bernstein, 2 x 8 x 18″


Green Stack
by Alex Bernstein

Here is one of North Carolina glass artist Alex Bernstein’s latest works. The combination of steel and glass, the elegant form and the stunning green color make this a standout piece.


Thanks for taking time to enjoy these outstanding glass artists. Please stay in touch.
