Light Waves

Handmade from sturdy borosilicate glass by artist Jim Loewer, each of these beautiful suncatchers has concentric rings of rippling blue and chartreuse, with unique variations in shade and shape that occur naturally as part of the glassmaking process. Hang it in a window to add a cool, artistic touch to your view. Handmade in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Glass artist Jim Loewer is inspired by Flaubert's ironic definition of art: "of all lies, art is the least untrue." But this much is true: his glass blowing is primarily self taught through a process of trial and error, and he loves the relatively instant gratification that comes with the process. A bit of a renaissance man, Jim has an undergraduate degree in painting, a teaching degree, and a law degree he obtained studying at night while making glass by day. Jim focuses on contemporary organic forms influenced by Japanese craft and the American studio glass movement.

Comments about HELIO GLASS SUNCATCHER:

I have shopped here numerous times and have been pleased with all my purchases,that is why I was shocked when I unwrapped this sun catcher and saw the size of it! It was to be between5-6 inches in diameter this is at the most 41/2! I feel it is over priced at 50$ with shipping.i bought it as a gift for my sister hope she isn't as disappointed as I am

Comments about HELIO GLASS SUNCATCHER:

I gave this beautiful piece as a birthday gift, but felt it was incomplete without some sort of method to hang it. I offered to go buy a suction cup hanger so it could be put in a window. It would be great if UG would offer to include a hanger as a purchasing item.
