Accent Art Glass Presents: About the Artist

MAGIC SANDS GLASS STUDIO

PETER VIZZUSI

Glass blowers have practiced their craft since the time of Christ, gathering the molten glass on the end of a hollow tube, inflating it and shaping it into functional and often beautiful vessels. Essentially these processes have remained unchanged for two thousand years! As modern glass workers, we best honor this vital tradition by free-blowing, hand-working and finishing the objects entirely "at the fire".

I hope you'll view my work as modern, sophisticated, even witty, while still being connected to the "archetypal" vessel. Yes, functional, yet more deeply meaningful for humans, forever. I will have succeeded if my work has tactile and optical appeal if, by a rigorous and scientific commitment I cultivate in you my friends, effortless bliss.
