Latimer Glass Studio
"Building and integrating a beautiful palette of color, with an intricate and balanced pattern, in fused glass
seems to be my mission these days. "
I am very interested in line quality and detail, how the glass moves, and how to draw with these elements in the design process. If I have done my job right, the glass draws you in and offers a deeply satisfying visceral experience. The panels bring color and light into a room and are enlivening and joyful.
Latimer's fused glass panels are created using multiple layers of colored glass. Layering is used to build both a rich and subtle palette of color, where the pieces cross over and under one another, and an intricate rhythm of line and pattern. The pieces are interwoven and positioned into a complex three-dimensional puzzle, very crisp and architectural in appearance and then fused, cold-worked and displayed on custom stands.
Lynn Latimer graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 1975 with a
BFA in Painting. The artist began working with glass at RISD as an independent study,
exploring stained glass under the guidance of Dale Chihuly. Chris VanAllsberg,
introduced Lynn to sandblasting glass, which continues to be an important element.
Lynn started Latimer Glass Studio in 1976 and has been working in glass for
thirty two years.
