Amazing Crashing Wave Glass Sculptures by Blaker-DeSomma

 

Marsha Blaker and Paul DeSomma are Santa Cruz, California based artists who work both collaboratively and independently on a variety of glass projects and series. The pair met at the esteemed Pilchuck Glass School in 1989, married in 1991 and opened their glass studio in 2001.

Marsha’s detail-oriented work is influenced by the intricacies of the marine environment, with emphasis on the myriad of textures and colors. Paul, a minimalist at heart, is most interested in freehand solid glass sculpting, emphasizing the clarity, form and optical nature of colorless and transparent colored glass.

In the featured sculptures below, Blaker and DeSomma capture the beauty of crashing waves with stunning glass sculptures.
