Biography:
James R. Wilbat has explored many paths with his artistic ability, but working in glass has captivated him for almost forty years. His distinctive style, which he describes as a combination of Old World glass and contemporary design, reflects his love of abstract expressionist painting. Wilbat combines various techniques in his hot glass work, including blowing, hand-tooling and sandblasting to create his uniquely textured, vibrant designs. James Wilbat has won numerous top awards at the juried art festivals where he exhibits. His continually evolving work is evidenced by his passion for glass: “I still look forward to every day in front of the blazing hot furnace. Glass fascinates me; there is no end to what new techniques, new discoveries, and new sources of inspiration I find every time I pick up a blowpipe.”
