About

Contemporary Modern Purple Glass Flat Vase Vessel Sculpture, 1997 by Randi Solin Fluid ribbons of iridescent and Amethyst background with twists of bands of soft champagne towards the top, on dramatic display through the semi-clear Amethyst color face of this blown and hand-shaped glass vessel. Cut and polished lip. A piece made when Randi Solin was in her Mt. Shasta Studio. Signed on bottom "Solin 1997". Randi Solin brings a rich, painterly effect to her glass creations. The dance between the fluidity of molten glass and the rigidity of the final, cooled form is kept alive in her creations. She never tires of looking for ways to push glass to the edge. She continues to challenge preconceived notions about blown glass, dazzling collectors with her exceptional technical skill and highly inventive coloration style. Randi Solin combines techniques from the American studio art glass movement and classic Venetian glassblowing to create a style that is entirely her own. Using glass powder, cane, frit, and rod like a painter's palette, she builds layer upon layer of color, creating truly original, one-of-a-kind work. Randi Solin was born in Bethesda Maryland in 1967. At age 12 she and her family moved to Manchester, Vermont where she lived until attending Alfred University in Upstate New York. Initially a student of photography, Randi became inspired to pursue a career in fine art glass in 1984, when she happened across a glassblower at work in a school studio. While studying and working in glass, she also worked as a teacher in Northern California at the grade school, high school, and college levels from 1990 to 1997. Solin first established Solinglass Studio with her former husband David in Mt. Shasta, California in 1995, later relocating to its present studio in Brattleboro, Vermont. Working and designing on her own (with hot glass assistants Marie Walker and George Billesimo, and with cold worker Michael Wind) since 2001, Randi's work has been acquired by the permanent collections of The White House, The United States Embassies in Algeria, Guinea, Praia, Mauritania, Benin – Africa, Guatemala and Paraguay, and has been seen in solo and group shows in galleries and museums across the country. Her work is currently represented by over one hundred art galleries nationwide. Randi incorporates techniques found in both classic Venetian glassblowing and the American Art Glass movement, however, her unique style and coloration process is entirely her own. "I approach my work two-dimensionally," she explains, "like a painter to a canvas or a weaver using thread to create an intricate tapestry. My glass pieces are compositions, and, atypical to glass blowing in general, they have a 'front.' Generally my forms have an Asian influenced simplicity, which allows for my complex coloration process. I build layer upon layer of color using glass in all particle sizes–powder, cane, frit, and rod–like a painter’s palette, to create original homogeneous coloration and truly one-of-a-kind work." Solin has received several ‘Best in Show’ and ‘Best in Glass’ awards for work exhibited at arts festivals in Connecticut, Florida, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Her piece Uruqin was hand selected by the chief curator of the Museum of Art and Design to be exhibited in the 11th Annual National Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Craft, Craft Forms 2005. Her expertise in the field of fine craft has earned her a position as juror for the Long's Park Art and Craft Festival in Lancaster,
