Hanson Art Glass: Ken and Ingrid Hanson

Image

"We constantly strive to evolve our ideas to create unique and exciting works of art in glass. It is the intensity and unpredictability of hot glass that inspires the constant change in our work. Through collaboration, we are able share our visions and skills to create one-of-a-kind works of art."

Ken and Ingrid Hanson have worked together since their early college years. Although traditional Italian and Swedish glass-blowing techniques inspire them, they employ a bold and innovative color palette to create their unique and contemporary art glass. Ken and Ingrid melt sand and other raw materials into glass at temperatures exceeding 2300 degrees Fahrenheit. They gather the molten glass onto blow pipes. Through the use of heat, gravity, and centrifugal force, they manipulate the glass into beautiful works of art.

The artists pay great attention to the detail of the surface decoration on their vessels. They create brightly colored stripes and symbols of cane and murrini by hand forming and melting glass into various shapes. During the glass-blowing process they fuse these inclusions onto the surface of the glass. Ken and Ingrid include 24K gold and pure silver leaf in many of their pieces.

By the Bay Gallery is proud to feature the work of Ken and Ingrid Hanson in our ever expanding collection of top quality American Craft
