GEORGE KENNARD GLASS

ABOUT THE ARTIST

George Kennard appreciates the limitless opportunities of manipulating molten glass. Having blown glass since 1990, Kennard has come to favor creating massive incalmo works, a technique that joins two blown glass bubbles to make different bands of color. He is especially well-known for his fantastically large sculptures, including a life-sized snow family and the world’s largest glass pumpkin.

 

“As a glass artist,” Kennard explains, “I enjoy making large-scale pieces because it’s a challenge and you really need to rely on a team for the effort.”


For the past 20 years, Kennard has worked with renowned Scottish glass artist Eric Hilton. Using the Swedish Graal technique, the men create glass layers that are carved, shaped, encased in clear glass, and then further refined. Graal is Swedish for Grail—as in Holy Grail—and the resultant objects of this refined high level glass blowing take on transcendant qualities.
