Frost Glass focuses on clean lines, shapes, and a contemporary esthetic. The artists use techniques that are centuries old and apply them in new ways to create work that is visually striking and engaging. There is something special, not just about the piece of art work, but also within the relationship that that piece has with the artist, owner, and physical location.
Each piece starts with a gather of molten glass which is then decorated using traditional techniques such as filigree cane work, overlays of color and precious metal leaf applications. The glass is then blown using heat, gravity, and the same glass tools that have been used for centuries.
Carrie Battista holds a BFA in glass from the Cleveland Institute of Art and Patrick Frost holds a BS from Illinois State University with the concentration in Glass. After finishing school, Carrie and Patrick spent several years traveling and working with master glassmakers from the United States, the Czech Republic and Murano, Italy.
