Glass Pear - Large

$105.00

This large, heavy glass pear is sure to be a beautiful addition to your home! Place it on a kitchen counter or make a perfect centerpiece for your table. For even more wow, group a few glass pears together! Each pear measures about 6" - 7" tall, 5" wide, and is crafted in Lisa Oakley's studio at Cedar Creek Gallery. 
This pear is sandblasted for a matte finish. After sandblasting, a fine coat of oil is applied. Washing the pear may remove that coat of oil. If it does, simply apply mineral oil to a soft cloth and rub the glass. Once the surface of the pear has a light oil coating, use a clean, lint-free cloth to remove any excess.

About Lisa Oakley

Lisa Oakley began blowing glass in 1994 when she immediately fell in love with the heat and fluidity of molten glass. She knew that glass was the creative outlet for which she had been searching and went on to build the first hot glass art studio in eastern North Carolina.

Much of Lisa's inspiration comes from the complexity of colors and patterns found in nature. Her work conveys a feeling of organic movement and texture, both visual and tactile.

Her work includes both decorative and functional vases, bowls, platters and ornaments. She is also one of the few American glassblowers making furnace-pulled glass beads, which she then uses to create her own original line of jewelry.

Lisa Oakley's hot glass studio is nestled between a forest and group of buildings housing both glassblowers and potters on the grounds of Cedar Creek Gallery in Creedmoor, North Carolina. Her parents, Sid and Pat Oakley, both potters, started the gallery with their own work in 1968. Over the last fifty-three years it has grown to support more than ten resident artists and over 250 regional and national craftspeople. Lisa splits her time between blowing glass and operating the gallery.
