Carlson Art Glass


"Red" is what sets Donald Carlson aside from other glass artists. All colors of glass, with the exception of red, are easily made. The formulas are simple, do it right, and the true color is achieved. But with red, there are variables, and not always within the control of the artist, but to his enduring credit, Carlson is the master. Carlson produces simple, eloquent pieces that stand alone in their beauty, but his red's best demonstrate the artistic and technical control expected an outstanding glass blower.
