Glass brings you a complete line of fine blown glass. All glass is completely
handmade using the same methods utilized since ancient times. The perfume
bottles, vases, bowls and oil lamps are all signed and dated, indicating
the care taken in making them. We hope these works of beauty will bring
you as much pleasure as we had in making them.
couple of our favorites.
When we first saw Buzz Blodgett's art work we were totally mesmerized
with the water color effect and look he creates with the blending of our
favorite colors. He uses bubbles filtering up the piece creating a realistic
underwater effect. With two galleries each located on the water , I would
say we are just a little predigested.
We know you will appreciate his fine craftsmanship as much as we do.
Here is his biography:
Buzz Blodgett has been creating in glass since 1969 when his father built
a glass furnace and introduced him to glassblowing. While Buzz was attending
college, he worked with his Dad and they began to sell their glasswork.
After Buzz graduated, they developed a line of glass wind chimes that
were marketed nationally.
In 1978, a Swedish glassblower visited and taught them new styles and
techniques. Infused with this new knowledge, new designs began to emerge
from the studio along with a large improvement in the quality of the their
work. Always an avid surfer living near the beach, Buzz began to develop
work with an marine feel to it.
After his father passed away in 1991, Buzz took over the operation of
Blodgett Glass. His love for the "art side of glass" has now
moved him more towards that market, and he is being represented more and
more by galleries and fine art glass stores.
