He taught school for four years before devoting himself full time to glass. He focuses on contemporary organic forms influenced by Japanese craft and the American studio glass movement. His studio is in North Philadelphia in the old Atlas building, which also houses various other artists and craftspeople. collection

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.
