River Vase by Scott Simmons
This blown glass vase measures 9 x 10 x 8"
Handmade by Scott Simmons of Sunrise Glassworks in Belleville, WI.
Scott Simmons began blowing glass in 1993. He received his training at the University of Wisconsin, where he had worked for the previous 14 years as a biological researcher. In 1997, he built a hot glass studio at his home, on a hill outside of Madison, WI, overlooking the Sugar River valley.
He now blows glass all winter and gardens in the summer. Simmons works alone in his studio, creating primarily functional pieces such as vases and bowls offhand at the furnace, using traditional tools and techniques.
