Crystal-fox Paperweight

Kachurik uses a technique of coloring the hot glass surface, which is called veiling. A veil is a metallic coating that is applied to the hot glass, and then covered with clear glass, thus trapping the color inside the sculpture. Kachurik is an independent glass artist who experiments with precious metals and chemicals to create his own colors, which are unique to his line today. These transparent sculptures maximize the extraordinary inherent qualities of glass. Every design is handcrafted using wooden blocks and newspaper to work with the molten glass. After the sculptures have been annealed, they are hand ground and polished. Each flat surface of the sculpture must go through six different steps of polishing to achieve the optical polished finish. The facets are added to give visual enhancement to the interior glass veiling. Each piece is personally signed.

    Epiphany Glass Art sculptures, paperweights In 1993 April Wagner and Jason Ruff began creating work collaboratively as Epiphany. Their artistic method of creating together speaks of a combined aesthetic. The artists equally design, develop, and create each piece signed under the epiphany name. All aspects of the epiphany works are created solely and entirely by April and Jason; no assistants or studio apprentices are allowed to work on the creations of glass works. The process used by Epiphany is traditionally termed fazzoletto, which means the glass is blown in free form. This is an ancient technique developed and mastered by Italian glass blowers over many hundreds of years. The epiphany pieces are created referencing the Italians, but adding a contemporary twist that consists of complex color theory plus a unique way of sculpting solid glass bits onto the exterior of the pieces. No molds are used during the creation of any piece.
