angelo fico & karen naylor

Medium: Glass

Booth #: LN3

We started blowing glass in college- Karen at the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1985 and Angelo at the University of Illinois, Champaign in 1989. We were both mesmerized by the molten glass despite it being a hot, heavy, sweaty, dirty job. We use finely crafted tools from Italy as well as machetes and tractor parts to shape our unique creations. Inspiration jumps out from all over- a sexy fender on a 1950's El Camino, the perfect spiral of a fiddle fern in the spring as well as the unpredictable beauty of the oceans. All our work is designed and created by the two of us alone.
