Ocean Motion

Wind sculpts seawater into waves: rising, twirling swells of energy. On a smaller scale, Richard Glass crafts his sculptural interpretation of a wave using colorful metal oxides and centrifugal force. "The glass is hot and wants to do its own thing," he says. "Its movement is unpredictable." Instead of trying to control that movement, he allows the wave to fold and bend naturally. The result is this spectacular centerpiece with rich, organic complexities. Display the sculpture on a mantle or dining table, or give it to a loved one who treasures the coast. Handmade in Devon, England.

We spoke with Richard, and we asked him, "Why glass?" Find out what he had to say on our blog.

“I love retracing the steps of previous generations of glassmakers. ... It’s a pleasure to keep this skill alive.”

Richard Glass's glassblowing studio is nestled in the small Devonshire town of Bovey Tracey in England. Together with two other designers and glassblowers, he can boast 70 years of experience working with glass. Their design inspirations often come from the beautiful Devon coastline combined with the directness and fluidity of hot glass itself. Their forms are often understated and organic.
