Hanson and Kastles

Ken and Ingrid Hanson are a husband and wife glass blowing team who have been working collaboratively for over ten years. Together they create hand blown art glass that is both unique and contemporary.
The artists pay great attention to the detail of the surface decoration on their vessels. They create brightly colored stripes and symbols of cane and murrini by hand forming and melting glass into various shapes. During the glass-blowing process they fuse these inclusions onto the surface of the glass. They often include 24K gold and pure silver leaf in many of their pieces.
