I work in blown glass, seeking both beauty and functionality. I believe that art/craft is the antidote to the ‘throw-away’ culture and that the objects we surround ourselves with should engage our affection and elevate our collective identity. By making precious and durable objects, we enrich ourselves and ensuing generations.
The Romeo Glass studio is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in a repurposed cordouroy factory. We share the space with potters, metalsmiths, stone carvers, a bronze foundry and a steeple-maker. We work year-round and welcome visitors to the South River Studios.
