Gartner/Blade Blown & Sculpted Glass
Stephen Gartner and Danielle Blade have combined their talents, expertise and individual ideas to create original works in blown and sculpted glass for more than a decade. Their work combines traditional hand blown techniques with innovative color application and original sculpting techniques. The inspiration for these pieces is rooted in nature and begins with their mutual fascination with the use of found objects from rituals in primitive cultures. In the following works they hope to convey a reverence for and an understanding of the value of our natural resources.

Batik Series
The Batik Series is comprised of ever evolving pieces incorporating Danielle and Stephen's favorite colors. Powdered glasses from 7 different hues come together to create wild & complex patterns. Each piece has it's own very distinct and unique characteristics and is finished with a Lapis or Coral lip accent. Batik Covered Bowl & Jar w/ Avian Finial pictured.

Strata Series
The Strata Series is inspired by Stephen & Danielle's fascination with natural geologic formations. Starting with a dense background of rich opaque color, over which the design reminiscent of marble or rock strata is inlaid. Natural elements such as bone, antlers, wood, vines, fossils and rock formations have inspired their signature designs which include covered vessels and sculptural objects. Each piece is finished with a brilliant gold lip accent. All works are unique with their own very distinct characteristics. Large Covered Jar in Ruby with Bone & Tendril Finial pictured.

Arbor Sculptures & Amulets
The Amulets are large scale sculptural pieces and each one of them is a highly individual one of a kind work. Either wall mounted on hand forged wall plates, or standing alone on a hand sculpted iron base. These pieces have the marvelous ability to transmit light in certain areas while retaining a beautiful opacity in others. The rich organic colors are manipulated into complex designs, which are then sand etched and sealed with a lustrous satin finish. Approximate measurements are 34"h x 9"w x 6"d.

New Lighting!!!
Newly introduced in 2009 - Gartner/Blade has taken two of their most popular finishes and turned them into lighting. The stunning new pendants are available in either the Strata finish or their Batik finish. The Strata finish allows you the ability to choose which colors you'd like on the top and the bottom. Nominated for 2010 Niche Award for Home Furnishing/Lighting.
