Chris brings the intriguing art of glassblowing and high quality products to his small, New England hometown community. Sherwin Art Glass maintains uniqueness in the world of art glass with its combinations of torchwork design, colorful backgrounds, and handmade and blown shapes. Offering a wide array of hand-sculpted and blown glass, local floral and nature themes are the focus of many of his designs and using his torchworking skills, Chris showcases some of the essence of the beautiful and unique New England flowers in his glass vases and paperweights. His hand-sculpted fruit & animals (including stunning Jellyfish, Cardinals, Snowy Owls, 4 styles of Bears, Frogs, Chickadees & Chickens!) are among his most popular and sought after designs!
