The rolling hills of Charlemont MA inspire the creations of Jonathan Winfisky, glass artisan and entrepeneur. Whether you desire a classy shell bowl to brighten your dining room decor, or a budding flower vase to house your favorite rose, or even a functional and stunning perfume bottle, you have come to the right place!
"My work is about groupings of objects — forms in a series all designed to work collectively in relation to each other, with an underlying design element which carries a theme throughout. The individual piece is important in and of itself, but it is the interrelationship of these design elements and how they translate into different forms which interestes me in my work. Glass is a very sensuous and spontaneous medium."
The "Sculptural Design Series" and the "Shell Bowl Series" shown in the online gallery are examples of forms which are designed and created using techniques that are thousands of years old.
Jonathan is an artist who was drawn to the medium of hot glass at an early age. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a degree in glass sculpture in 1978. His elegant pieces are known for their jewel-like colors, sensuous forms, and simplicity of line.
His work has been featured in the Corning Museum of Glass, The Corning New Glass Review, The Wheaton Museum of Glass, and is shown in over 600 galleries nationwide, as well as numerous prestigious public and private collections.
Each piece is a signed and dated original work of art glass created in the setting of a renovated 100-year-old barn studio in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.
