|Tim Lazer approaches his art with a combined love for the medium, a gifted technique, and the knowledge that the fugitive nature of hot glass will forever present a challenge. As he attempts to control what might be considered an uncontrollable medium, the direction of his designs often evolve and take new forms.
Lazer's love for the medium of glass began more than thirty years ago at Palomar College under the artistic influence of Val Saunders. His education in the art of glass blowing continued at CSU Fullerton. During these early years, Lazer often spent sixty hours a week over the furnace to learn and perfect the techniques he uses today in offhand glass blowing. This process allows him to create specific glass shapes by using multiple layers of glass, often using glass powders and precious metals which are fused or melted onto the glass surface.
Tim's works are sold in fine art galleries across the United States and in Europe.
