Each piece of glass Michael Egan creates is made of solid glass cane material that he designs and produces in his studio. Combining different styles of cane yields a variety of woven or tapestry surfaces and introduces secondary colors and detailed patterns within the walls of the blown glass pieces. The results are at once controlled and serendipitous, distinguished by a painterly, watercolor sensibility.
Recently, Egan began slumping and fusing cane to explore abstract two-dimensional designs and lighting elements. This natural evolution of his creative process has led him to invent new forms of surface design while still working with hot glass.
