“Art Symphony, a stunning showcase of kiln-formed glass art.
Inspired by the natural beauty and seasons of Vermont, the artist, Caroline Quick has spectacularly brought together a composition of harmonious elements producing a range of unique and functional glass table wear. Caroline loves creating, whether it’s cutting glass, taking photographs or dabbling in interior design. Always a cutting tool, camera or paint brush in hand!
She loves the fluidity of glass and creating pieces in many forms. In particular, she finds her Petrified Wood Series magical and is always excited to see what chemical reaction takes place with this glass in the kiln. Each unique piece shows the beauty and appearance of wood grain that is forever captured in glass.
Commision work is always welcome and there’s nothing more precious to her than spending time with the client and ensuring that their vision comes to life.
The Petrified Wood Series
Each piece of glassware is constructed of two or three layers of hand-cut glass. The shape is finely ground on a diamond grinder and then kiln-fired. During the kiln process the Petrified Wood glass reacts chemically with the copper based turquoise to give the appearance of wood grain in glass. A stunning effect and one that varies with each fuse. When the kiln lid is opened a magical surprise awaits…”
