One hand-blown, matte-finish glass lemon. Handcrafted by Cedar Creek Gallery studio artist Lisa Oakley in her on-site studio. Each lemon measures approximately 2.5" in diameter x 3.25" tall, but just like real life, every lemon is a bit different! Group several in a bowl for a stunning look!
- These lemons look incredibly real, but since they are solid glass, they are much heavier
- The matte surface on this glass piece has been achieved through sandblasting. Once sandblasted, a fine coat of oil is applied. Washing the piece may remove that coat of oil. If so, simply apply mineral oil to a soft cloth and rub the glass. Once the surface has a light coating of oil, use a clean, lint-free cloth to rub away any excess oil.As with all hand crafted items, slight variations in size, design, and color should be expected.
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.
