Gartner-Blade-Strata Art Glass Vase - Blue Amethyst Urn-URNOP-STAB Gartner-Blade-Strata Art Glass Vase - Blue Amethyst Urn-URNOP-STAB
"Beauty is truth, truth beauty, - that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.” Poet John Keats stated it so eloquently in his musings about an urn. Using nature merged with ancient cultures as their inspiration, Danielle Blade and Stephen Gartner have combined their ideas, techniques, and experiences to create original works in blown and sculpted hot glass. This vase is part of their Strata Collection with the look of natural marble on a deep amethyst blue and black background. The lip of the urn is finished with a bright metallic accent. Hand-blown glass created in the U.S.A and signed by the artist with the year the urn was created. 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.

Originally from the Isle of Wight UK, Danielle is the daughter of British glass artist Martin Evans.After an apprenticeship at Isle of Wight Glass, Danielle moved to the US in 1985. Prior to establishing GartnerBlade Glass, Danielle studied with prominent American and European glass artists and was employed as a glasshouse gaffer and a glassblowing instructor.

Stephen Gartner
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.
