About the Artist:
Russ Gilbert began his career in glass with flameworking in 1977, using clear borosilicate glass. By attending workshops with some of the world’s best lampworking artists and through his own trial an error he mastered the art of shaping glass with a torch. Soon he added glass blowing to his repertoire of artistic skills. Gilbert creates unique, eye catching, and high-quality glass pieces that focus on naturalistic styles and themes, often incorporating elements of nature such as driftwood.
