RODDY CAPERS

 

Statement

I work in a distinct style which is different from any other glass blower or sculptor. All of my pieces are one of a kind and people who own my work know they have an original piece of art.

The glass work is free blown and hot worked and comes in a variety of styles, colors, sizes, textures and elements.

They may be transparent, opaque or sandblasted (frosted), electroformed, welded and whatever else I can throw in to add to the confusion of what I do everyday.
