William Glasner creates beautiful vessels in fresh glossy colored glass with soft frosted leaf designs applied to the exterior. The precision of his work make this process seem simple when in reality it is very difficult. In order to put two pieces of glass together they must both be very hot - hot enough that they are extremely flexible. Putting hot leaf designs onto the exterior of a still developing vase shape with precision and artistic grace is a quite an accomplishment! I am sure you will have a renewed appreciation of his work when you view our collection.
