"Providing High Quality Contemporary Art Glass Sculpture"

Over 25 years of professional experience creating hand blown glass

About us

Bernard Katz employs a wide range of techniques to create his contemporary art glass sculpture.

Bernard is often asked about his inspiration for his artwork. Earlier works of art from the Tree & Root Series along with the Foliage Vessels referenced objects found in the natural world.

In recent years, Katz’s hand blown glass artwork has transformed from decorative vases and vessels to more sculptural forms. The Melange Series is a prime example in this artistic direction.
