Kevin O’Grady

Kevin starts each year with a new signature cane. He creates the design and letters and then pulls the cane to the small finished size without any distortion. Each year has a new design and every orb and bracelet is marked with it. Authenticating it as an original made exclusively by Mr. O’Grady.

“I am an independent glass artist who works borosilicate glass rods over an open flame, often called a lamp worker or a torch worker. Borosilicate is more commonly known as Pyrex and is a very strong and durable glass. The color palette commonly available in borosilicate is very limited and dull. I have perfected mixing techniques that enable me to create vivid and beautiful colors previously unknown in borosilicate glass. Many of my techniques are self-taught.

Each one of my pieces is a one of a kind, signed, hand worked original made solely by me using no apprentices. Primarily known for my glass bracelets, I also make beads, marbles, paperweights, small platters, vessels and sculptural pieces.

I am also well known for my detailed mastering of borosilicate murrine canes. Working glass in a flame is my passion.

My inspiration for colors and designs come mostly from nature. Such things as feathers and water as well as flowers and galactic stars can be seen in my work.” ~ Kevin O’Grady

Oceanic Collection

Made with pure gold and silver, these bracelets are full of  treasure and fantasy. 

Each style reminds you of the ocean with the depth and movement of colors.

Many of Kevin’s bracelets and orbs are created with a process known as Fuming. He creates colors within objects by using precious metals such as 24 kt Gold and Sterling Silver. It is a laborious and time consuming process. Precious metals are placed on a glass rod and put into the flame while the object is held above the fumes. The fumes rise to the glass piece above and create colors. Different metals will create different colors in glass. The fumed layers are then covered with multiple layers of of clear borosilicate glass to produce an incredible depth within the finished pieces.

No two are ever exactly duplicated.
