You will "sea" the Rockies every time you gaze upon your Sargasso large covered jar created by Stephen Gartner and Danielle Blade. One never knows the moment their inspiration will hit. On a mid-day flight high above the Rockies, Danielle Blade was struck by the awe-inspiring beauty of the palette of colors naturally provided by these majestic mountains. Layers upon layers of terra cotta and gray greens were highlighted by a brilliant white. Spellbound by these colors, the moment she arrived home, Danielle tore apart her studio to capture and recreate this exquisite color combination into Gartner & Blade's blown glass. Inspired by the hues of deep green, raw umber and coral red, the Sargasso Collection was born.

This tall Sargasso vessel is created in an urn shape on a footed base. The Sargasso design in this art glass is accentuated by an ivory colored background. An additional composition of horizontal lines is pressed into the color pattern of the vessel and marbled smooth before the final gather of clear molten glass. The lid has an avian style finial. No two will ever be exactly alike in size or in pattern.

GartnerBlade

Is the collaborative work of Danielle Blade & Stephen Gartner. Business partners since 1996, we combine our ideas, techniques and experiences to create original works in both blown and sculpted hot glass. We are continually developing a series of pieces that explores our interpretation of objects used in rituals and worship. The inspiration for these pieces begins with our mutual fascination with the many vessels and sculptural objects that are revered in the rituals of both primitive and contemporary cultures. Natural elements such as bone, wood, vine and rock formations combine with our highly original color palette to inform our signature pieces. Our work merges traditional hand blown glass techniques with innovative color applications and original sculpting techniques.
