Shiloh Hunkapiller

Shiloh Hunkapiller is a borosilicate glass artist who uses lampworking techniques (the manipulation and blowing of glass with the use of a torch) to create glass art ranging from marbles to vessels. His artwork is simple in color and form, yet elegant. He uses only the finest American borosilicate glass and kiln anneals all finished pieces to remove stress within the glass.

Shiloh began his artistic career as a woodworker specializing in the building of bamboo fly rods. Over the years, he has also acquired a great appreciation for and interest in glass art. Therefore, when he had the opportunity to learn glass blowing from fellow lampworkers he took advantage of it. Shiloh studied the art for approximately two years. Finding that glass blowing came naturally, he chose to pursue it full-time. His prior experience building bamboo fly rods has helped him while lampworking--both require patience and close attention to detail and accuracy. Over time, Shiloh has taken the knowledge taught to him and begun to develop his own unique techniques and style. He is continuously experimenting and pushing both the glass and himself.

Comments about CHAMPAGNE FLUTE:

We bought this so we'd have something for our wedding toast at our reception. These flutes are truly beautiful. But the ones that were sent to us are almost a 1/2" difference in height, and one is narrower than the other. We enjoy these flutes for their individual uniqueness, but they are considerably smaller than we'd anticipated.

    Comments about CHAMPAGNE FLUTE:

    Purchased as a bridal shower gift. I was so grateful at how well it was packaged to arrive in perfect condition after shipment. They were a little shorter than I had expected but the blue "confetti" is beautiful!
