Molly Barnes creates ephemeral hand blown glass bowls and vases that showcase her talent in the medium of blown glass. Her pieces are reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts Movement, yet modern and quietly bold. Although abstract in design, the patterns in each piece are beautifully evocative of nature’s splendor. Whether used to display a bouquet of flowers or to simply be admired in the light, Molly’s pieces fit their setting – whether it is a Craftsman bungalow home, a modern loft or a corporate setting. Molly is a native of Portland, Oregon and started blowing glass in 1995. Molly learned to blow glass in a small, open to the public studio in Troutdale, Oregon. She also worked at Bullseye Glass and Uroboros Glass in Portland for several years. After assisting many local glass blowers, including John and Heather Fields, Molly built her own studio in 1999.
