Glass sculpting

Fire into Ice: Adventures in Glass Making
by James Houston

Artist James Houston lived in the Canadian Arctic for many years. While there, he learned about bone and ivory carving and taught block and stencil printing. Houston agreed to leave the Arctic and move to New York City, where he was asked to design glass. Houston's love of the Arctic shine through in the ethereal glass sculptures he created. He likens the sound of glass to the cracking of ice on a northern lake.

Eloquent and imaginative, you'll want to seek out Houston's glass sculptures in galleries around the world.
