You will see the Rockies every time you gaze upon your "Opal" small bowl created by Gartner and 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 pallet of colors naturally provided by these majestic mountains. Layers of upon layers of terra cotta and gray greens were accentuated by a brilliant white. Absolutely spellbound by these colors, the moment she arrived home, Danielle immediately tore apart her studio to capture and recreate this exquisite color combination into Gartner & Blade's blown glass.

The opening of this "Opal" bowl has a brown lip. 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. This style is available for order but no two will ever be exactly alike in size or in pattern.

Artist Details

Artist's Location: Ashley Falls, Massachusetts, USA
Artist's Technique: Off-Hand Blown


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.

Born 1964 in Phoenix, AZ., I grew up near Charleston, South Carolina and also spent a few years living in Naples, Italy.I began my glass making career as a lampworker (torch-work) in 1993, making animal figurines, paperweights and floral sculptures. I met Danielle in 1996 and a year later we opened our first glass shop in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. We relocated to Ashley Falls, Massachusetts in 2000.
