Joe Becker (far left):  You’ve never seen quite this many textures crafted in glass. Using both glassblowing techniques and grinding and polishing, Joe’s “sculpture vessels”  make the most out of space and form

Nolan Prohaska (middle): Using nature as an inspiration, the artist utilizes color and a variety of techniques to stunning effect. Bonus: Nolan’s flowers never wilt.

Robinson Scott (right): Robinson’s vases and bowls capture so much light that you’d never want to weigh one down with flowers. These handblown creations look otherworldly as they glow with dynamic energy.
