Painting with glass

The works of local glassblower George Watson are currently on display at The Silver Ribbon American Crafts and Art Gallery in Pembroke.

"Watson's pieces are truly one of a kind," a gallery spokesperson stated. "The glass vessels are virtually layers of colored glass that flow and move around his various shapes. The techniques he uses to create the vessels enhance the depth, intensity and luminosity of the glass."

Watson, who works out of his Village Glass Studio on Archer Avenue in Pembroke, has been creating glass artwork for more than 30 years. He has designed and fabricated glass windows for many fine New England homes and has worked with New England architectural antiques firms.

"My pieces are truly one of a kind," said Watson. "I have never been interested in production-type work. I find it next to impossible to try and create the same piece twice."

He added, "My work now is focusing on expressionist applications of color." Watson is striving "to bring my skills to the highest level possible in painting with glass."

The Silver Ribbon gallery is located on Route 53, Pembroke Crossing plaza, and is open Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
