Eben Horton of the Glass Station Studio at the Sandwich Glass Museum
Exhibit runs April 4 - July 29
"The Sandwich Glass Museum is pleased to present this distinguished and multi-talented glass artist from Wakefield, Rhode Island. Eben Horton, master glassblower, who has created pieces for Stolichnaya and Goreham Crystal, will be the featured artist in the Contemporary Gallery from April 4 - July 29. Eben creates custom one of a kind pieces on an individual basis out of his studio that he calls "The Glass Station" - a converted 1920's gas station.
Prior to creating The Glass Station, Eben attended The School of American Crafts BFA program, Penland School of Crafts, an independent study in Murano, Italy and has taught at The Corning Museum of Glass. As of late, Eben's talents have been in demand in the architectural sector, creating large installations, custom lighting, and is highly specialized in historical reproductions of early American 17th century glassware. While many glass artists specialize in one style of glass, Eben refuses to define his work as a singular style and prides himself as a highly skilled technical craftsman."
