Life Forms by Glass Artist Bryan Randa
April 1 - October 31, 2013
The Sandwich Glass Museum is pleased to present Life Forms by the talented torch and hot glass artist Bryan Randa in the Contemporary Gallery from April 1 through October 31. This exotic display will include a variety of creatures from our natural world. Some from the garden like hummingbirds, praying mantis and dragonflies. A majority of the work will be aquatic life from the ocean like octopus, sea turtles, crabs and sea shells of all kinds! Also on display will be a several pieces in a larger scale. Large colorful vases and sculpture will be displayed along with a few drinking vessels.
This talented artist grew up in Iowa and developed a love and curiosity for nature and its intricacies at an early age. From pencil drawings and clay sculpture to graphic design and ultimately glassblowing. He works within two worlds of glassmaking. One of which is lampworking, with this he creates beautiful glass creatures of the ocean and of the garden. The other is off hand glassblowing in a larger scale. Using this technique he makes a variety of functional vessels and sculptures of colorful glass. This is done at McDermott Glass Studio in Sandwich, MA where he has worked for nine years within an intense apprenticeship under David McDermott and Yukimi Matsumoto.
Bryan Randa’s work will be available for purchase in the Museum Store.
