Welcome to sghilliard glass. I’ve been drawn to glass since my parents let me buy a stretched 6 oz Coke bottle at a gift shop in Gatlinburg TN, moving on to play with pyrex tubing and Bunsen burners while working in Biology labs. As my tastes have matured I’ve realized that I most enjoy the interplay of light, color and form that’s only possible using glass as a medium. My interests include celtic and natural themes in fused glass and copper foil, and I’m currently obsessed with the oddly meditative practice of flameworking, melting rods of glass and building up beads and marbles on stainless steel mandrels. I live in North Georgia with my wife Amy (a watercolor artist), two cats and two dogs.
I post updates on my activities in the Blog. If you’re interested in purchasing any of my work please see my Etsy shop, or contact me directly. Thanks for visiting!
