G. G. Havens-Reid

My chosen art form is lampworked glass.  This is glass being manipulated in the flame of a torch, with all decoration being applied to the molten glass, using dental-like tools. I have been working with glass for over 25 years.  Like many, I started out in stained glass, then progressed to the hot glass processes. 


To me glass is a magical substance. It can be hard and sharp one minute, then taffy-like the next. Manipulating hot glass is indescribable.”
