Patti & David Hegland
These Niche award winners create unique meticulously crafted works of art in glass. From pencil sketch to a 1,500 degree kiln, an artistic vision takes shape and emerges as fused strips of colored glass contoured into various deep and shallow shapes. The glass strips have been cut so thinly that when fused they have a narrow banding effect and look like tubular brocade. The color pallette is a striking range of citrus tones-from pale greens to deep oranges-offset by creamy, translucent whites and geometric bands of black.
A winning combination of design elements create their own signature look.
