Keith Walker - Glass


My attraction to the medium of hand blown glass is that it fulfills my desire to work both physically and creatively. I love the way transparent glass and natural light play off one another. New moods are instantly transformed as the available light changes. Object shape, color and proportion can all play key roles in creating pieces with presence.               

    The real excitement in the art of glassblowing for me lies within the process and journey by which the objects come into being. Working on a new piece and seeing it evolve right before your eyes; all the while knowing one false move will send it crashing to the studio floor is a thrill ride which i will never tire of.

   I feel my hand blown glass artwork reflects personality, humor, the pursuit of elegant forms and visually pleasing color concepts.
