2020 Winner – Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show – Excellence in Glass

“Earlier careers in engineering and finance ingrained in us an acute attention to detail which we apply to all phases of our craft from the complexity of our designs to the precision applied to the finishing processes used to polish and shape each piece.” 

We are a husband and wife team known for our innovative designs, complex construction, and precise finishing of our art glass. Acute attention to detail during each phase of the process is critical to a finished piece of our work. Our intricate designs incorporate hundreds of multi-layered hand-pulled murrine individually placed within thin strips of clear, transparent or opaque glass placed on edge. Once formed, each piece is extensively coldworked — shaped, ground, sandblasted and polished to enhance the visual impact and feel of our finished vessels and sculpture.

Our studio is located in the historic Chestertown, Maryland Arts and Entertainment District on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay.  We have taken numerous workshops at glass studios in New York, Washington DC, Oregon and North Carolina and studied with outstanding artists in the field of kiln-formed glass to gain specific technical skills.  We accredit our achievements as glass artists to the combination of that acquired knowledge coupled with the long hours spent in our studio exploring new designs and techniques.
