Hand Blown Glass
Tim Lazer approaches his art with a combined love for the medium, a gifted technique, and the knowledge that the fugitive nature of hot glass will forever present a challenge. His philosophy about the nature of his art is ever-changing as his work reflects. As he attempts to control what might be considered an uncontrollable medium, the direction of his designs often evolve and take new forms.
Lazer’s love for the medium of glass began more than thirty five years ago at Palomar College under the artistic influence of Val Saunders. His education in the art of glass blowing continued at CSU Fullerton. During these early years, Lazer often spent sixty hours a week over the furnace to learn and perfect the techniques he uses today in off-hand glass blowing. This process allows him to create specific glass shapes by using multiple layers of glass, often using glass powders and precious metals which are fused or melted onto the glass surface to achieve lustrous, iridescent, opalescent, opaque, or transparent glass pieces.
Working in his northern California studio, Lazer focuses on combining beauty and function to produce vases, bowls, perfume bottles, lamps and ornaments. His more traditional shapes lend his work a graceful utility and the more unique designs with fusion, layering of colors and application of gold & silver leaf. The aesthetic quality of his work is impressed upon his art with the Lazer signature. Tim Lazer’s glass is exhibited and sold in fine art galleries across the United States and in Europe. His work is represented exclusively at Art Leaders Gallery in West Bloomfield, Michigan.
