August's Featured Artist: Anchor Bend Glassworks

Add a touch of nautical beauty to your home with Anchor Bend Glassworks.

Anchor Bend, a glass art collaborative in Newport, RI, has been creating beautiful glass sculptures for nearly two decades. With our home on the edge of Lake Superior, their pieces fit perfectly both with the others at Lake Superior Art Glass and in your home.

 

Excerpted from their website:

          Anchor Bend Glassworks is an unprecedented glass art collaborative comprised of childhood friends Michael Richardson, Justin Tarducci, and Timothy Underwood. We all met while exploring our shared enthusiasm for art, glass, and creation.

          The talents from all three glass blowing artists encourage and compliment the energy and originality that permeates every piece of glass that we create, such as a blown glass sculpture or ornament. Since its establishment in 2003, Anchor Bend has played a prominent role in the Newport arts scene and we pride ourselves on giving back to the community.

          Continuing on the nautical theme, the company name ‘Anchor Bend’ is a type of knot used to attach a rope to an end point. For us though it represents how our roots are anchored here in the Ocean State.

          Anchor Bend is constantly striving to honor and expand the glass blower's art. Our innovation is fueled through experimentation and creation. Put simply, we love what we do and do what we love! Anchor Bend is proud to share our labor of love with you.
