Artist K. William LeQuier started blowing glass as a traditional glass blower. Over the years, his technique evolved to a sculptor of very unique glass art. He got involved in a glass blowing program while he was a student at Southern Connecticut State University.
After he graduated, LeQuier and his wife partnered with two other glass artists to form a studio called Bittersweet Glassworks eventually moving their studio to Readsboro, VT.
“My experimentation with varying depths of carving combined with different resist materials yielded unexpected and exciting results and gave me new directions to explore.” Inspired by the diversity in form and color of undersea creatures, many of these works were reminiscent of sea urchins, sponges, anemones and their environments. Check out 36 of his glass sculptures below.
LeQuier uniquely conveys the raw emotion of a single moment in time with each of his sculptures. The power of his work is in the quality and expression of three-dimensional sketches carved from glass.
