George Bucquet
Pushing the limits Of Artistic Glass Casting

Glass artist, George Bucquet, creates contemporary hand-formed cast glass imagery that is both ...More...
meditative and visually stimulating. He began casting hot glass at Penland School, North
Carolina in 1984. After completing his studies, George continued to develop new and innovative
techniques for creating his original contemporary forms. His unique and elegant bowl forms
gracefully capture motion and depth while appearing to emit light from within. The heirloom
quality of Bucquet’s solidly rich sculptures is an uplifting addition to any style home.

Working together with precision timing, Bucquet and his assistants pour hot glass, thick and
translucent as honey, into a handmade sand mold, then carefully press it into shape. A mold is
individually created for each casting and the colored molten glass, formulated from scratch, is
melted to 2350 degrees Fahrenheit in a custom-built furnace. After several days of cooling in an
annealing oven, each bowl is skillfully hand-detailed with copper, silver and gold leaf.

Truly a master of his craft, Bucquet continues his quest to push the limits of artistic glass casting.
George has recently started producing his new line of nautically inspired glass art.
