James Stanford

          James spent thirteen years as a nationally competitive gymnast before he began to express himself as a glass artist. From the age of four he practiced twenty hours a week on the development and "lines" of his body. Balance, movement, and knowledge of anatomy would later inform the inherent motion captured in his glasswork.
          Living in Seattle, he discovered his talent for working in blown glass and soon after started his own studio where his knowledge of movement and form could readily be seen as he began to create large sculptural art glass pieces of the human body.
          He has recently closed the doors to his public glass studio preferring to travel and participate in art shows and juried events around the world. International judges and collectors have recognized James as “refreshingly original with nuances of a surrealist approach to glass”.
