Kyle Rich Glass
This old school piece made by skateboarder turned glass artist Kyle Rich was made in 2003. It has multiple layers of silver and gold fume. Although Kyle had done plenty of fume work, this was the first time he did all of the work on the surface of the glass. There are a total of 16 individually and intricately worked sections to this piece. He also did what is called a penetration. This is where the glass penetrates itself resembling donut hole. Very technical, very fun and an uncommon style for its time.
After over twenty years experience, Kyle Rich has made his name in fine art but the lucky consumer can occasionally find some of his functional art locally. Contact him directly @kajaglass on Instagram and Facebook.
Truly an artist and all around stellar person, Kyle spends each day creating delicate and beautiful glass art for us all to enjoy.
