Pizzichillo-Gordon“We are influenced by forms and patterns in nature and by our travels including Bali, Java, Lombok, Indonesia; Cappadocia, Turkey; and, most recently, Costa Rica.” – Bruce Pizzichillo and Dari Gordon

In their sculptures, Dari Gordon and Bruce Pizzichillo use found objects and recycled materials. Bruce has a particular fondness for rusty metal. Their blown glass pieces, on the other hand, are made of “just” glass.

The artists make use of many Italian glassworking techniques ? such as incalmo and “broken trail,” a technique that creates a series of dots on the surface of a piece. Their goal is not to blow traditional Italian glass, though, but to use the techniques in their own modern way, updating them to suit their needs.
