Nicholas Kekic

"I think of glass as a liquid that is frozen to room temperature in a controlled and sometimes precarious balancing act of heat, gravity, timing and human intervention. "

Nicholas Kekic is a third-generation glassmaker. His grandfather was an industrial glassmaker and his father was a founder of the American studio art glass movement. Within this family environment, Kekic's appreciation for handmade objects and the process of their creation was nurtured.

Kekic's designs capture the fluidity of glass and its unique relationship with light. Like his father and grandfather before him, he is most satisfied by making glass pieces that are beautiful and useful.
