Nanda Soderberg

Nanda Soderberg started blowing glass at the University of Hawaii in 1994 and was instantly struck by the immediacy of the process. He has always been attracted to activities that are fast paced, require extreme focus and involve a degree of risk. Blowing glass was a natural fit.

In 1999 Nanda received his BFA in glass and left Hawaii to gain experience working in production glass shops in Seattle and California. In 2005 he moved to Virginia to pursue his Masters degree in Art. Since receiving his MFA in 2007, Nanda has taught at Virginia Commonwealth University, California State University Fullerton, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and Pilchuck Glass School.

Nanda is driven by the idea of taking a found glass object, something that may have had a single use or is heading for a landfill, and transforming it into something that can be used indefinitely. Nanda works in a studio without a glass melting furnace re-configuring found glass objects through traditional hot and cold glass working process. He plans to continue his experimentation and research with found glass, tackling design and production challenges head on to provide the consumer with unique products. collection

    Comments about GOLD LEAF WALL CLOCK:

    Sometimes I just want to glance at the time without looking at my smartphone. This clock is perfect in the living room. Large enough to see across the room but not so huge that it shouts "clock!" Blends into an arrangement of other art objects nicely. The dial to set time was a bit awkward, hence the 4 stars vs.5, but it hold time, so that will only be an issue when it is battery changing time. It was my perfect tick tock solution.

      Comments about GOLD LEAF WALL CLOCK:

      Wanted to buy a gift for friend's 50th anniversary. This clock's presentation online looked perfect. However when received the gold leaf finished looked stained and unevenly painted.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The clock arrived quickly as expected. However I did not want it any longer due to the quality of the painted finish. I phoned the company and 'all' was taken care of for returning this clock. There was no hassle what so ever. I was extremely satisfied with how the return was handled. Thank You, Uncommon Goods. I will definitely be shopping with you in the future.
