Our only glass artist at the gallery, Gary Word is a man of exceptional talent. We are currently showcasing his fused glass salmon pieces, but he is also incredibly well known for his playable (yes, playable!) fused glass instruments. Scroll down to check out a video of Daniel Lennon playing Gary’s ‘Epiphone Guitar’.
“Since 2000, I have been working in fused glass. The thrust of my present work in this medium is the continuation of a seven-year journey of the production of stringed instruments. The instruments – electric guitars and classical stringed instruments, adding to vast and unique contemporary American art and culture.”
