Exquisite Blown Glass Vases, Plates & Bowls. Jeff Holmwood’s signature series, the one for which he is known best, is his Vortex Vessel. In this technically challenging and visually dramatic series, he integrates an elegant form with a complex surface design that results in a unique vortex pattern on each piece.
Jeff Holmwood attended the University of Calgary, where he studied English, then followed his true calling as an artist and studied glass at the Alberta College of Art and Design. He has taught glass at three of the world’s most respected glass schools: Pilchuck Glass School, founded by Dale Chihuly, in Washington state; the Penland Craft School in North Carolina; and the Red Deer College near Alberta. As well as being represented in many private and corporate collections, Jeff Holmwood’s work is shown in numerous fine galleries, museums, juried exhibitions and other notable venues throughout the United States, Canada and internationally.
