Redstone Art Center is thrilled to add David Gappa, an extraordinary glass blower and sculptor, to our growing collection of fine artist's work. You will find David's pieces around the gallery now ranging from small gifts to large rondels, bowls, and vases. We also offer working with David for commissions and designs to fit your personal collecting passions.
“I have found that the passion of my life is working with the shifting energies of molten glass into its final stages of artistic completion. I choose glass as an artistic medium for many reasons: the complexity of color and light; the classic beauty of glass; the challenging mental and physical discipline required; and the poetic and seductive nature of molten glass. For me, working with glass is the magical act of translating the ethereal into solid form. The creation of each piece is a journey as I strive to trust in the path the glass chooses for me…a trail of color, form and function.
“It is my current and future endeavor to strive to achieve a quintessence of glass by unifying various glass media such as blowing, fusing, casting and sculpting and even diverse media such as metal and wood into a composed embodiment of art glass, requisite to its environment and perpetual in its beauty. This impending mission is and will be my life-long journey.
“I strive to educate my audiences on both the history of this art medium as well as the difficult and complex process of the completion of each piece. My priority has been to seek the Spirit of God as the basic foundation of my art and business. Each creation is the recognition of the joy and beauty that God has given me…transformed into glass.“
