About the Artist:

Greg Rawls

Greg (Gregorie) Rawls has been creating kiln-formed (fused) glass since 2003. He has studied extensively with many accomplished glass artists and has developed techniques for taking kiln-formed glass in new directions. He earned a BS in Biology and a MS in Public Health (Industrial Hygiene) from the University of South Carolina. He lived in Charleston for over 20 years and currently lives in Beaufort, South Carolina. He is pursuing glass art full time with his company, Gregorie Glass, which specializes in kiln-formed glass for art and architecture.

Kiln-formed glass is a very difficult medium due to issues of glass compatibility and the inherent fragility of glass. All of this makes it a most challenging art form. Glass, when properly worked, is amazingly strong and this strength makes a presence that will stand the test of time.

“I am fascinated by the way light plays off glass, either transmitted or reflected, giving the work new meaning with changing light and viewing angle. I want my work to be simple and expressive, yet convey a sense of color and light in harmony. I have always been inspired by the colors of the Lowcountry. The marsh, ocean and incredible sunsets form my palette.”
