"Form intrigues me and inspires my glass design. Glass' fluid movement and seductive lines allow me to create objects of beauty and style."
Drew Hine's passion for glass began when, as a ceramics major, he found himself in a glassblowing class. From the start, form and color have been focal points of his work. The artist enjoys exploring the simplicity and perfection of the vessel, striving to create tall, beautiful forms. His most recent work incorporates bright, vivid color, yet maintains the sleek, modern shapes that are his signature.
Over the past eight years, Hine has experimented with numerous techniques, but incalmo intrigues him the most. Upon first using this technique, Hine discovered the potential to not only combine two colors, but to combine two separate forms into a completely new one. Today, the artist uses this technique to create forms that have never been seen in glass.
