Scott Benefield is internationally known as a glassblower and educator with a speciality in Italian cane techniques. He has conducted workshops on these techniques in the UK, ROI, Turkey, Japan and throughout the United States where he resided for many years. Now you can admire his work at Vessel Gallery.
Benefield takes the exquisite techniques of mid century Italian glass as a starting point to his work. His Vetro Mosaico Vessel moves beyond historical replica by intentionally disrupting the rhythm and order of pattern to create a unique, tension filled piece that question our ideas about perfection and control. The collection uses sheet glass that has been fused into murrine and blown out using only a glory hole (without a furnace).
