ARCATA ARTISANS

George Bucquet

"I enjoy and appreciate many aspects of hot glass, but it's the aesthetics of cast glass that has held my attention for the last 33 years. I love the whole process of designing work and overcoming the technical challenges that seem to come with each piece. In the end, it's simple beauty that moves me most, and I feel successful and grateful when it moves others..
