Glass HomepageBruce Freund

Bruce Freund is a true artist. He looks to nature for inspiration. He is just as comfortable with a blowpipe as he is with a paintbrush in his hand. He is fearless in his life and art, always stretching the boundaries and pushing the different mediums. Transforming fire and sand, using freehand blowing techniques and tools of centuries past, while applying new technology, results in one of a kind works of art that Bruce hopes will be enjoyed for years to come.

Artist Statement

petro standThis piece was a challenge to create. I wanted to create a crackle effect for the background color to come through the glass and clay. The glass was easy, as it can be achieved by submerging it in water, the clay was more difficult. It took 6 months to perfect the glaze, I love the texture.
