Gartner & Blade is the collaborative work of Danielle Blade & Stephen Gartner. Business partners since 1996. We combine our ideas, techniques and experiences to create original works in both blown and sculpted hot glass. We are continually developing a series of pieces that explores our interpretation of objects used in rituals and worship. The inspiration for these pieces begins with our mutual fascination with the many vessels and sculptural objects that are revered in the rituals of both primitive and contemporary cultures. Natural elements such as bone, wood, vine and rock formations combine with our highly original color palette to inform our signature pieces. Our work merges traditional hand blown glass techniques with innovative color applications and original sculpting techniques.
Amethyst Sage Talisman
Gartner & Blade’s Amulet series represents an evolution into the medium of hot glass. This decade long journey is told through their body of work. Each piece is a one of a kind sculpture and was created to mount on any wall or on a hand forged wrought iron base. The rich organic colors are manipulated into each sculpture then sand etched to compliment each design.
