The alluring violet tone is just one of the striking aspects of this piece. Polished to a shine after it has been cut with a diamond blade the top of this vase is impeccable. Made by using a "double-" technique the body of this vase was created by dipping the vase at andangle back in the furnace without distorting the color that had alraedy been shaped.
Artist: Craig Campbell
“Glass is my medium of choice because of its unrelenting demands, ability to take on sculptural shape, and a range of colors that seduce my eye as they catch the light.”
Over forty years of hot glass experience fuels Crag Campbell’s glass designs. Some major influences have been a year of study in Denmark, four years as an associate art professor, and especially working in the Midwest community of glass artists. This community encourages and supports each other in our individual pursuit of a glass “voice” unique to our region. Craig’s work is characterized by monochromatic jewel tone designs, and is dependent on controlled form, and uses visually impactful surface etchings. The addition of precious and semiprecious metals such as electroplated copper and brass, and the use of gold and silver leaf, gives Craig’s work stimulation to the brain as well as the eye. Craig has created large scale installations, as well as architectural and function glass art pieces, as well as custom designs for the corporate incentive market.
