Gartner-Blade, Austral Sculpture, Amethyst Lime
Glass, 12 x 44 x 3.5 in
Since 1995, Stephen Gartner and Danielle Blade have combined their individual ideas, techniques, and experiences to create original works in handblown and sculpted glass. Their inspiration is rooted in nature and begins with their mutual fascination with the use of found objects in the rituals of primitive cultures. Over the past decade Gartner-Blade has been developing a series of pieces that convey a reverence for, and an understanding of, the value of our natural resources.
