About the Artist
Tom Stoenner has hand blown fine art glass for over three decades. The artist aspires to create a line of artisan glassware with the intention of replacing manufactured household items with handmade artwork suitable for everyday use. Stoenner's line is functional, with clean lines and contemporary silhouettes. Stoenner creates a balanced dichotomy in his work between the crisp figuration of his designs and his use of vivid color and an organic, marbling texture. Along with the functionality of Stoenner's work comes and inerrant association and intimacy between the artist and the patron. He states, "I have always believed that things made by hand offer a shared experience between the maker and the user. A simple object can forge connections." Stoenner continues to design and produce his art glass out of New York State.
