Stephen Gartner and Danielle Blade have combined their talents, expertise and individual ideas to create original works in blown and sculpted glass for two decades. Their work combines traditional hand blown techniques with innovative color application and original sculpting techniques. In the following works they hope to convey a reverence for and an understanding of the value of our natural resources and our beautiful landscapes throughout the world.

The Amulet & Talisman Series - are comprised of large scale sculptural pieces and each one is a highly individual, one of a kind work. Either wall mounted on hand forged wall plates, or standing alone on a hand sculpted iron base. These pieces have the marvelous ability to transmit light in certain areas while retaining a beautiful opacity in others. The rich organic colors are manipulated into complex designs, which are then sand etched and sealed with a lustrous satin finish.
