There is a quality in glass that is generated by the glass itself. Those qualities are elusive, intriguing and seductive. I make them as much a part of my work as possible. I work with thick glass because it exhibits qualities which interest me--depth, transparency, reflection and refraction. My attention to strong form is a very important factor in my work. This thought coupled with the cold work to cut, polish, engrave, highlight surfaces using lathes, merkers, dynafiles and flexible shafts incorporating stone and diamond wheels and other various tools evident in the canted forms and anklets, gives my work a unique presence.

Join me this weekend for two 1-hour Zoom sessions. On Day 1, we will walk through the process of hand blowing a piece.  Day 2 will cover work on the piece in the cold shop -- cutting, grinding, polishing and engraving. I look forward to the chance to connect with you -- even if virtually! If you have any questions or would like to attend these virtual sessions, contact me for the Zoom invitation details. I can be reached via email at sudduthglass@gmail.com or via call/text at 216.401.0680.

Each piece of glass I make is individually hand-blown and unique, and is made primarily from recycled materials. I am concerned with color, texture, balancing negative and positive space, and distorting perfection. I find inspiration in my family, as glass blowing has been a part of me for my entire life. For design, I look to natural and biological processes, trying to reach an organic look with my forms that flows softly, and avoids straight lines.

My current body of work has roots deep in the history of Italian glass design. These roots date back to the renaissance when the technical virtuosity of Italian glassblowers was at its zenith. That skill level set the pace for the rest of the world for many decades to come. It has fascinated me that techniques invented in the 1500’s can still be so challenging to master and so intriguing to the modern eye.

Handcrafted artisan glass was the answer to my artistic inquiries and I have been sculpting glass into works of art since 1998. What has gained me the most notoriety, are vortex marbles. These perfectly round spheres with spirals of color play with optics and physics to create visual depths that transcend the physicality of the piece itself.

My fused glass landscapes are composed of clear sheet glass, colored crushed glass (frit), and torch-formed strings of glass. They are ALL GLASS - NO PAINT! They are multi-layered and multi-fired. LED back lights are included.

Glassblowing for me has become a process of taking a unique, transparent, very hot liquid and freezing it at room temperature, in a controlled and sometimes precarious balancing act of heat, physics, timing and human intervention in these processes. I find glass most beautiful when worked in such a way that conveys its fluidity as a material while expressing its unique relationship with light and transparency.

I have been honing my skills for the past ten plus years and have continually thought of how to blend both traditional glass working techniques with modern design and functionality. With these thoughts in mind I draw inspiration from both Italian and Scandinavian designers and glass houses from the last century.

The simple bubble is the genesis of all blown forms in glass, perhaps even the soul of glass. I prefer to work in blown forms because they capture a touch of life and a unique part of the artistic process; the human breath. In this series, I've tried to let go, allowing the bubbles to expand as large as they can without too much control over their shape as they inflate in one breath.
