mcewen_LINELOCATION: Beyond Design (Venue #10)


After a successful career as an Art Director and Graphic Designer, I found hot glass as a medium for creating art with my hands again rather than a computer. Using a tabletop torch, I heat the glass until it’s molten, then shape and decorate it all while it is hot and untouchable. The resulting beads and other items are then annealed in a kiln for long-term durability. I try and share a little bit of myself within every piece. My new work is incorporating the glass into other forms of art with mixed media.
