Tom Crosby

Tom is a second generation glass blower living in Grand Marais, MN. By day he works making scientific glass and by night he creates reticello and fillacello style pendants. To create a reticello, he uses stringers (rods of glass stretched thin) to draw on symmetrical patterned designs. A fillacello is created the same way but the negative spaces are then filled in.  He backs some of his pendants with dichroic glass to add some sparkle to the under layer.
