Artist Statement by Leckie:

Leckie Gassman's Glassblowing skills visiting our Hot Shop at Lake Superior Art GlassWhile in college at Alfred University I began transitioning from the pottery studio where I worked alone to the captivating community of the glass studio. Together with glass and pottery, I also began using the wood lathe. By working all of these processes together they began to enlighten my understanding of each separately and ultimately enhanced my outlook of form, composition, and most importantly hand crafting materials as a whole. These experiences have deeply influenced my work and led me to work in a glass production setting for several years after college. After gaining an understanding of production and the hand skills that accompany I began traveling through residencies in order to pursue my own potential as an artist and maker.
