7 Piece Set.
Ken Miller - Toledo Artist
I find passion in the traditional style of Venetian hot glass making with a sustained focus on venetian craft ware. I was recently able to embark on a journey to Italy in which I was able to study the unique form and tradition under the hands of a few of the Murano Maestros. While Venetian craft ware such as goblets can take complex and peculiar stature, I tend to focus on the anatomy and mechanical aspect of what makes a goblet solid in structure. Minimal and precise, my work tends to possess a diverse range of color from light washed hues to almost fluorescent shades peaking for observation.
