I’ve loved Art since I was a kid, but It wasn’t until 1994 when I was exposed to flameworked glass that I knew I had found my passion. In 2005, after 20 years in IT, I decided to leave corporate life and devote my time to flameworked glass. Since then I have sold my creations across the United States at Art festivals in 23 states from Washington to Florida. Check out a Pocket Galaxy!
I create flameworked pocket galaxy spheres and pendants from borosilicate glass, precious metal powders, fumes, and foils. I also use opals, and other minerals as inclusions in my pieces.
My primary inspiration is the night sky, and all things celestial. I grew up in Montana and remember seeing the milky way at night while camping in the mountains. I usually had a science fiction book in my pocket as well, so I could read by flashlight after we went to bed. From this the Pocket Galaxy was born.
You may now purchase my Pocket Galaxy Spheres and Pendants directly through my Etsy! https://www.etsy.com/shop/EricMortArtGlass
