Passionate Synapse

(2009)

A sultry 16″ square decorative platter in solid black with deep red fissures.

There’s a lot of emotion going on in this work, both on and under the surface.

Perhaps the owner of such a piece can share this sentiment!

Funky Red & Green Hors D’Oeuvres Plate

(2008)

Brilliant greens and reds in this 16″ hors d’oeurves plate form striped patterns on a black background, complemented by large frit specks.

Maki sushi would look very temping served on this statement piece!

Cube Floor Lamp












Be sure to check out “The Making Of …” this work.


(2008)

Simple in overall shape, this cube-like lamp design is all about the glass – the rich, dramatic textured hand-rolled variations in greens, blood-browns, caramels, and white (note the mottled effect in some of the glass – it’s wonderful).  You’ll see that Greg has utilized this form factor before.

Pre-cut glass of this nature is a work of art in itself – it’s almost a shame to work it into another form!  Which is why you’ll notice larger swaths of colour accentuate naturally-forming ebbs and flows of both.  There are no “random” shapes in these panels: colour and texture choices interweave to create a dramatic presentation, celebrating the glass.

The video clip below the slideshow reveals in motion this flow between each panel – delicious!

River Flows Through It

(2001)

Greg made this window panel as the third in the series of gothic church-peaked themed pieces.  It is smaller than the first two, measuring 23 1/2″ x 55 1/2″.

Most notably, it has been selected as a feature branding piece for a King Township community organization for 2009: find out here.

Marigold Platters

Vibrant marigold sets the stage with black whispy ribbons and chunky spots for these two platters.

Each piece is: 1) 15″ x 8″ 2) 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″.

Deco!

This art-deco inspired 21″ “ball” vessel features vivid pastel green, yellow and purple.

The focal triangular 3-colour striping is a complicated effect that ads significant interest to this bold statement piece.
