Randi Solin

"My work is a juxtaposition of weighted organic form and sharp polished edges. I approach glass like a painter to a canvas; the coloration, vivid and original, is reminiscent of a swatch of fabric."
Randi Solin, a glass blower of twenty-five years, brings a rich painterly effect to her glass creations. The dance between the fluidity of molten glass and the rigid form, upon cooling, is kept alive in her creations.
Solin's work is a fusion of the American studio art glass movement and classic Venetian glassblowing.
My optics–the cut and polish, the juxtaposition of this organic form with this stark hard edge–is unique to my work and a signature of sorts. My work requires the viewer to interact with the piece, to hold it, pick it up, to look into its interior life, to feel its incredible weight and mass, and to engage with its optics and its coloration.”
