Guy Hollington began his career in glass almost by chance; an offhand comment led to an introductory course that morphed into a passion for the blown glass medium. Further study at both the Corning Museum of Glass and the Pilchuk School of Glass provided insight into more of the intricacies of glass blowing and further refinement of his technique.
The design on Guy’s stunning vase, ‘Circular Walk’, is created by the layout of hundreds of small pieces of resist which preserve the glass during sandblasting. Guy explains, “Curving metaphorical walkways wind their way around this copper blue piece.”
