Martin Kremer

"My work is influenced by texture and pattern from many sources including Native American fabrics, Italian masonry, classic quilts and wood marquetry."

Glass has been a medium of expression for Martin Kremer for more than 25 years. He began as a stained glass enthusiast while pursuing a career in medical technology. Glass gradually took over, evolving from a hobby to a spare time business to a full-time obsession.

Martin Kremer's current series includes fused and slumped plates and bowls. The richly textured and deeply colored glass vessels highlight the magical interplay of glass and light and are variously opaque or luminescent, playful or formal, spontaneous or intricately structured.
