Artist’s Statement


“I work in the medium of glass and specialize in torchwork design and application. Using hand-pulled canes of glass made specifically for each design, and a hand-held oxy-propane torch, I melt and shape the tips of the glass canes and apply them to the glass form being created, to achieve the desired design. It is best described as ‘Painting with Glass.’ 


After the decoration is complete, all of my work is hand shaped with wet newspaper. I like to get as close to the glass as possible and using newspaper allows me to feel how the glass is moving with my hand. Some of the pieces are formed into paperweights, others blown into various vessels.“

-Chris Sherwin



Biography


Chris Sherwin specializes in iridescent and torchwork design, creating sculptural glass objects of subjects inspired by the beauty the artist finds in nature.  Sherwin’s torch work is an intensive process, creating hand pulled cane for each design with meticulous detail.  The artist hand shapes each piece to achieve a harmonious elegance, an expression of the artist’s joy for life.  


Sherwin’s sculptural glass has evolved from years spent at both Simon Pearce, Inc., a prestigious glass facility in Windsor & Quechee, VT known for their high-quality production of functional crystal; and at Orient & Flume Art Glass, an internationally renowned glass studio in Chico, California known for their iridescent vases, intricate paperweights, and torch-work designs.
