2.25" x 2.25" x 2.25" Glass Box

Do you ever wonder why glass draws your attention even when you are not looking for it?  Could it be the color, texture or maybe just the process it takes to create it?  Check out these three forms of glass at Hunter-Wolff Gallery:  blown glass by Donna Gordon, fused glass by Dan Hewett and, most recently, crystal glass achieved through the lost wax method of casting by Hibri Glass.

These newest offerings are limited edition (47% lead glass) crystal boxes, with removable lids and  textured patterns in soft pastel colors.  Pick from soft powder blue, amber, lavender and a host of other colors.  At close inspection, each delicately designed box is accented with connecting patterns of figures.  The boxes feature Haida motifs of the Northwest Canadian Indians with interlocking totem animals.

 We are anxious to learn what our glass collectors think and welcome feedback on these uniquely hand-crafted glassworks that take an indeterminable amount of time to design and craft. For glass collectors looking for something slightly different and functional, we think you will find these little gems perfect for a gift—for someone special or for yourself.  Glass is always a welcomed treasure in every collection.
