GartnerBlade Glass is the work of Danielle Blade and Stephen Gartner. Business partners since 1995, Danielle and Stephen have combined their ideas, techniques, and experiences to create original works in blown and sculpted hot glass.
They have been developing a series of pieces that explores their interpretation of objects of ritual and worship. The inspiration for these pieces begins with their mutual fascination with the many vessels and sculptural objects revered in the rituals and ceremonies of both primitive and contemporary cultures.
Natural elements such as bone, wood, vines and rock formations combine with their highly original color palette to inform their signature designs. Their work merges traditional hand blown techniques with innovative color application and original sculpting techniques. See more on their website.
