Gary Guydosh

Born west of Steubenville, Ohio, Gary Guydosh currently resides and works from his studio in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He received his formal glassblowing training in 1998 at Bowling Green State University. Gary now takes time each year to study with Italian glass masters in Murano, Italy, which lends Venetian flair to his work. Before becoming a glassblower, Gary was a journalism/public relations photographer for fourteen years.

"Glass is for me the medium which best fits the expression of my innermost feelings," he says. "When I approach glass in its fluid state, I am deeply moved. My eyes attentively follow the movement of my medium while it takes shape together with my idea. Making the glass come to life is no easy task, but all of the difficulties vanish before the pleasure and emotion I feel when fire, which softens and moves forms, lets me reach the ideal dimension."

      Comments about GLASS WATER FAUCET:

      I saw this water faucet with glass water on Pinterest. It kept drawing me back to look at it. I saw it was an artist piece and the water was glass and was intrigued.
      My passion is interior design. I mix antiques with modern art. This eternally poring water faucet is on a reproduction inlaid wood table from Theodore Alexander between two floral chairs. On the table is a Cybis vintage bust, some antique mini portraits and this amazing piece of 3-D art. I love it!

              The picture looked great but when I received it I wasn't happy at all with it. Definitely not worth the money I paid. When I sent it back my money was refunded very quickly. I would definitely order from the company again.
