“Painterly” fused glass platter by Bob Heath

This platter has a black frame which surrounds a color inlay made entirely of various shades of Blue, Green and Black. The color inlay is made in a style that I call Painterly due to the way  the colors randomly flow and merge into one another like brush strokes. On this platter, I took advantage of the fact that Black becomes glossy at a lower temperature than all of the other colors.  By fire polishing at just the right temperature, I was able to maintain a matte surface on the Blues and Greens, while making the black streaks in the inlay and the frame glossy. The difference in the light reflection of the matte versus the glossy surfaces provides another element of contrast in this piece.  The edge of the panel features a beautiful Mint Green racing stripe.–Bob Heath, glass artist
This platter could be used to serve appetizers, Sushi or just as a decorative table centerpiece.

Handmade lazy susan platter by Darcy Martin
Using 1300 degrees in a kiln to fuse and create glass is a beautiful and challenging partnership between the artist and the laws of physics.  Designing projects with structure and color still must face intense heat for up to 16 hours. 

About the artists:

Oregon is home to many glass artists, due in large part to the presence of several of the world’s major manufacturers of raw art glass materials and numerous glass schools.

This has given Bob Heath the opportunity to study with many of the leading artists in the field including; Avery Anderson, Marty Kremer, Richard LaLonde, among others.

Bob has been an active part of the Oregon glass community, serving on the board of directors of the Oregon Glass Guild since 2005, and as its state president.

Glass artist, Carolyn Myers, creates dichroic (pronounced “dye-crow-ick”) glass, two colored multicolored and reflective proprieties. She has lectured about her glass art during the Seaside First Saturday Art Walks at the Fairweather Gallery. Her next appearance is on June 5, 5-7:pm.

“When you look at this glass, it appears to have more than one color at the same time, especially when viewed with different lighting. The effect was originally created with trace amounts of gold and silver in a large glass melt, resulting in glass that only partially reflects light passing through it.”

D’arcy Martin is a NW fused glass artist who has been designing and creating for 20 years.  Born with a restless, creative imagination, he has always ‘dabbled’ in the arts.  Over the decades, nothing kept his interest long enough for it to reign supreme his wife signed him up for a glass fusing class.

A kiln was purchased, other crafts and arts were forsaken, and the glass journey had begun!

Now showing at the Fairweather House and Gallery, May 2021. And, too, his new glass will be featured during the upcoming Fairweather exhibition INTO THE BLUE, June 5-25.

Hand fused art glass bowl, vanilla and amber, by Bob Heath.

“I  create individual components that are fused separately, and then cut and shaped before ultimately being fused together. After the work is fused, it is cold-worked to achieve a professional finish on the surface and edges that brings out the inherent beauty of the glass.” BH

    Outdoor garden **folly filled with  cattail dyed green spheres and handmade moss decorative moss spheres.

     

    **Q:  What is a garden folly, you ask?

    A: A garden folly is usually considered a building or structure that is designed for decoration with no other purpose than to add a touch of whimsy or extravagance to the surrounding landscape. The term began as “a name for any costly structure considered to have shown folly in the builder” and was often named after the individual who commissioned or designed the project. The connotations of silliness or madness in this definition are in accord with the general meaning of the French word “folie”; however, another older meaning of this word is “delight.”

    Photos by Linda Fenton-Mendenhall.

     

    “This exhibit’s expectation lies in its possibility to present fresh, new perspectives, inspiration, experiences, reflection and even the possibility for transcendence in some way. Indeed, the meaning of “fresh start” is the beginning of a new period or step.  The North Coast land, truly, is in full springtime bloom for FRESH START, Fairweather’s March exhibition.”

    Sand-carved handmade glass bowl by Bob Heath

    “I do a lot of work with a technique known as drop-out which is used to create vessel shapes such as bowls and vases by carefully managing heat, time and gravity to stretch and shape glass in a kiln.”

    “This technique can be combined with strip-construction to create dramatically patterned pieces however I also use the drop-out method to create vessels which become a canvas for sand-carved imagery similar to cameo glass.”

     

     

    Painterly plate series by Bob Heath

    “I have been an active part of the Oregon glass community, having served on the board of directors of the Oregon Glass Guild for over 10 years, and as its state president in 2012 and 2013.”

     

    Strip-construction glass work by Bob Heath

    “My primary technique is fused glass, but that covers a broad range. I am mostly known for strip-construction work which involves cutting narrow strips of glass and placing them on edge. That technique enables the creation of highly detailed designs. Very often my designs require the creation of multiple component pieces that are fused separately, then subsequently cut, shaped and fused together to create the whole. In 2014, I was honored to have one of my works selected as a finalist in the prestigious Bullseye Emerge Glass Competition which is a bi-annual, international event to recognize and reward emerging glass artists.”

     

     

    “My artwork is part of many private collections throughout the US and has been featured in exhibitions at many galleries, including The Portland Museum of Contemporary Craft and the Portland Mayor’s office.”

    Bob Heath artist statement

    “My engineering background expresses itself in my glass artwork, both in terms of design influence and in the precision and attention to detail that I strive for in my glass creations. My work is typically very colorful and often features geometric patterns with strong lines and sharp contrasts. Edges and rims are cold-worked and polished to give them a professional finish.

    I like to think that I work not only with glass, but also with light. I love opal glasses for their ability to reflect light and create patterns and transparent glasses for the way they transform light and the colorful shadows they cast.

    After working 35 years as an engineer at Tektronix, I retired and am now able to devote my time to my passion for creating glass art. The Pacific Northwest is home to many glass artists, due in large part to the presence of several of the world’s major manufacturers of raw art glass materials and numerous glass schools.

    This has given me the opportunity to study with many of the leading artists in the field including; Avery Anderson, Patty Gray, Melissa Paxton, Stacy Smith, Marty Kremer and Richard LaLonde.”  (See fun facts below)

     

     

    Fun facts:

    Bob Heath took classes from Richard LaLonde, a cousin to Seaside gallerist Denise (LaLonde) Fairweather.

    About Robin Heath, glass artist: 

    Robin Heath, a native Oregonian, enjoys many hobbies including photography, computer gaming, volunteering and working with glass. Robin has dabbled in both stained and fused glass, but has found his current niche in sand-etched glass. He learned the basics of sand blasting and etching from his father, Bob Heath, and continues to evolve, developing his own style and technique.

She has recently become interested in sandblasted glass and is currently exploring that art. 

    Rox particularly likes experimenting and learning new techniques and skills. In addition, she has taken classes from Patty Gray, Miriam Di Fiore, Raphael Schnepf, Roger Thomas, and Kelly Crosser Alge to further her knowledge. 

    When not working with glass she enjoys reading, travel, and volunteering for Cycle Oregon.

    Welcome Bob Heath, glass artist!

    After working 35 years as an engineer at Tektronix, native Oregonian Bob Heath retired to spend full-time pursuing his passion for creating glass art. Bob has explored just about every possible way to manipulate glass, from torch-work to sand carving, finally settling on glass fusing as his primary technique.

    Oregon is home to many glass artists, due to the presence of several of the world’s major manufacturers of raw art glass materials. This has given Bob the opportunity to study with many of the leading artists in the field including; Avery Anderson, Patty Gray, Marty Kremer, Richard LaLonde, Peter McGrain, Robert Oddy, Stan Price and Raphael Schnepf. Bob has been an active part of the Oregon glass community, having served on the board of directors for over 10 years, and as its state president in 2012 and 2013.

    Bob’s artwork is part of many private collections throughout the US and has been featured in exhibitions at many galleries, including the Portland Museum of Contemporary Craft and the Portland Mayor’s office.

    “I really enjoy working with the process of fusing glass and like pushing the envelope to try to accomplish things beyond the ordinary.”

     

    My engineering background expresses itself in my glass artwork, both in terms of design influence and in the precision and attention to detail that I strive for in my glass creations. My work is typically very colorful and often features geometric patterns with strong lines and sharp contrasts.

    I really enjoy working with the process of fusing glass and like pushing the envelope to try to accomplish things beyond the ordinary. Most of my work is carefully planned, starting out as a detailed drawing. I use this stage to try out multiple variations on each idea and to think through the steps that I will use to implement the design in glass. In many cases, the complexity of the design requires that I start by creating multiple individual components that are fused separately, and then cut and shaped before ultimately being fused together to create the whole. After the work is fused, it is cold-worked to achieve a professional finish on the surface and edges that brings out the inherent beauty of the glass.

     

     

     

    And, too, Bob Heath creates  silk screen/ power printing  glass in frames.

     

    Green lattice handkerchief vase by Bob Heath.

    Fun facts:

    Bob Heath studied the art of glass from Richard LaLonde, a cousin of D. Fairweather, gallerist.

    Keeping the art of glass in the family, Bob’s wife will show sand blasted stemware and beverage glasses at  Fairweather’s soon.
