Lunn Glass

"Having been fortunate enough to study under Italian masters, I absorbed age-old techniques, learning very quickly the importance of structure and design. Combining these traditional techniques with a more contemporary style, I create glass that is both beautiful and timeless. "

Gina Lunn uses traditional Venetian glassblowing techniques in all of her work. Inspired by Italian masterpieces, she is committed to keeping the tradition alive in a world that is rapidly moving away from these methods. The actual process of blowing glass is the most appealing aspect of their medium.

Each piece is hand blown without molds using cane and murrini techniques. Cane and murrini are cores of color pulled or stretched and sometimes twisted into 50-100 foot rods. These rods are then cut into shorter sections, heated, and rolled up to create a bubble which is then shaped. Murrini is cut into cross sections to be used in conjunction with lengthwise cane.

Lunn studied with Karen Willenbrink-Johnsen, Lara Donefer, Ross Richmond, and Stephen Powell.
