Hummingbird! Sand blasted beverage glass. By Robin Heath.

Available as one, available as a set.

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.

About Rox Heath, glass artist: 

Rox Heath started with a stained glass class several years ago and quickly switched to fused glass as she discovered its many possibilities – particularly those involving glass powder and frit (tiny pieces of glass). 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. 

Fun Facts:

Rox is the spouse of Bob Heath, Fairweather gallery fused glass artist.

Robin is the son of Bob and Rox Heath.

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.

 

 

“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.”

 

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.

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.

Thank you, Sara, art patron and Gallery curator, for the artist referral.
