“My work is a direct result of the inspirations and fascinations I find in my oriented rural way of life. The tools we use to provide food and make goods, man’s ability to become masters, seemingly God to his crafts and trades, and the magnificence of the natural world I find myself surrounded by the world over. This inspiration is born into glass in the form of fine tableware, intricate flowers, Venetian goblets and pristine glass knives, as I continue to explore the possibilities of earth’s most perplexing and romantically enticing materials: Glass.” – Geoffrey Crozier
