Glass - http://www.jeffsorensenglass.com
Raw. Sharp. Dangerous. Glass is the prose of the soul, brought to life by the breath of its creator. Each piece has its own story, its own charm, its own identity. Whether it is an elegant wave, a hard edge, or a smooth sphere, every piece is hand-blown to challenge preconceptions, inspire the future, and instill a sense of place.
I strive to blend the techniques of the masters, while testing my physical stamina, in new and exciting ways. Blowing glass requires strength and knowledge; strength to not allow the piece to rest and the knowledge to recognize when to beg it to stop. With my glass, I offer beauty. I offer context. I offer a reminder of what it is to be human.
I am a Minneapolis gaffer with more than 15 years of training and practice. Pulling techniques from all over the world, my roots can be found in the Swedish style of glass blowing. Using a style based on high heat and a quick pace, it is my goal to capture the human experience.
