About Carrie Gustafson
The pieces I craft with love, care and time do indeed shine serenity, light and joy back into the world. My work is largely influenced by the natural world and I have come to view working in my studio akin to cultivating a garden. There is an organic rhythm to my creative process. Like an inhale and an exhale - inhaling my surroundings and exhaling life into new pieces. With each new piece another door for exploration opens. And I have found that each work uniquely informs the next; as much as anything pre-determined. My love of color is always present and glass - made by way of breaths imprint - remains a potent metaphor in my work.
