Sol's glass art reacts
amazingly with the light. He believes the life-giving light of Father Sun
puts the spirit into the rings, bending light, creating intricate three
dimensional reflections, and creating energy forces in their center.
|| Red Tide
transparent scarlet bowl with the ring, accented with gold streamers and
murinis, will draw the light to it creating fluid reflections.
|| Tri Fish
shape of this bowl provides the space for the salmon to swim in harmony.
In 1938 a fish
was caught off South Africa that was thought to be extinct 66 million
years ago! Many of its relatives are still alive today in waters around
the globe. Sol has been intrigued by this fish, the coelacanth, since
he first heard about it, and pays tribute to it in this colorful, fanciful
|| 7th Generation
year the salmon of the Pacific Northwest migrate back to their birthplace
to complete their cycle of life. They lay their eggs in the gravel of
the streams and rivers and then, their mission complete, they die. This
large, impressive bowl with the ring shows the salmon swimming up through
the kelp beds before they leave the ocean for the last time. Sol's wish
is to honor their tenacity and courage against great odds.
|| Gigi Fish
A vivid hyacinth
layered over rich raspberry and speckled with aventurine gold, gives this
hand blown glass fish the look of tropical elegance.
|| High Tide
Cobalt blue waves,
washing up the beach, carrying treasures from the ocean depths.
These glass starfish (or sea stars) are hand formed by Sol. Each one is an original with its own unique characteristics. Sol uses many different color combinations in creating these solid glass sculptures that range in size from 7" to 16" across.
One August afternoon at high tide on Cox Bay, British Columbia, Sol laid out dozens of his glass starfish in the tidal pools alongside the real thing. People walking by on the beach were amazed to see such colorful starfish, not realizing they were made out of glass!
