Concord Art Glass produces high quality fused glass plates, bowls, pendants, and sculpture.
Everything is made in our home studio.
We are based in upstate New York and bring our work to Arts & Crafts Festivals in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Florida, New Jersey, and South Carolina.
Many of our usual Festivals have been cancelled for 2021 (Allentown, Elmwood Avenue, Fox Run Garlic Festival, and others), but we do hope to be at the following:
Westhampton NY - September 4, 5
Colorscape (Norwich NY) - September 11, 12
Orchard Park Festival - September 18, 19
This bowl was made using the strip construction process. The primary colors are Indigo Blue and French Vanilla with Deep Red and Clear also used. The bowl is about five pounds. It can be displayed using a stand, as shown, or horizontally.
This piece was made in our home studio and taken to the Corning Museum of Glass twice for cold working. We rent time in their cold working studio, as they have equipment that we do not have at home.
We have had a life long love of glass.
We began by purchasing glass pieces for our home, and eventually we began to collect pieces by artists such as Pino Signoretto, William Gudenrath, Dominick Labino, Marty Kremer, Kari Minnick, Raven Skyriver and others.
We have spent many hours watching inspiring artists like Lino Tagliapietra, Davide Salvador, Marc Petrovic, Davide Fuin, Martin Janecky, Bertil Valien, Nancy Callan, and others demo their genius at CMOG.
Now we are making our own glass work,. We can be found, most weekends of the year, selling our work at Arts & Crafts Festivals in New York, Connecticut, and Florida. The rest of the time, we will be making glass pieces in our basement studio.

We have been instructed by many well known glass artists, including Manuela Milan, Marty Kremer, Alicia Lomne, Kari Minick, Gayla Lee, Janet Dalecki and others. Most of our training was done at The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass.
In 2018, We are honored to have received the 'Best in Show' award at the Letchworth Arts & Crafts Festival, Award of Distinction at the Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival, first place in glass at Colorscape in Norwich, NY, and second place in glass/mixed media at the Bruce Museum Outdoor Festival in Greenwich, CT.
We continue to take classes and apply what we have learned to make the work 'our own'.
