Randy Strong, an award-winning artist, designer, and master craftsman—has created elegant and highly sought-after works in blown glass for over 40 years in his East Bay, California studio. By combining his eye for contemporary design with ancient techniques, he designs and creates extraordinary works of art that are truly one-of-a-kind. Strong’s work has been characterized by the use of difficult, defining techniques, materials, colors, and forms. His latest sculptural work challenges the concept of solid form in glass by further expressing its personality in lightness and movement that seemingly defy gravity.
