|In the winter of 1995, Virgil
moved to the thriving hot glass community in the mountains of western North
Carolina. The “Bigger is Better” bug hit and Virgil built a complete blowing
studio. Having learned basic metal working with the building of the studio
building, the furnaces, and tools, metal casting was explored. This allowed
the creation of unique, one-of-a-kind glass blowing molds.
Virgil’s art glass is a contemporary
combination of unique old style skills with modern hand-blown furnace work.
Each design is sketched before any glass is melted. That idea becomes either
an immediate free-form glass piece or a cast metal mold for recreating a
limited number of similar pieces.
