Scott Garrelts

Scott Garrelts has been working with glass since 2006. He enjoys making many different forms from glass, including bowls, vases, and other vessels as well as imaginative and some more realistic sculptures.

A thousand year old technique, known as caneworking, is one of his favorite styles to work in. It involves creating, and then arranging thin rods of colored glass. Sometimes in patterns, and many times weaving in and out of each other while flowing through the piece of glass. There are millions of different ways to use cane. Going hand in hand with cane is murrine, which is pulled similar to cane but typically left thicker in diameter and then cut into cross sections.

Garrelts makes all his clear glass from scratch. He also tries to use intense amounts and variations in color. Many colors are made from raw materials. The main ingredient is sand, followed by soda ash and lime. By creating his own colors he's able to come up with some colors that may not be available to the rest of the glass world.
