Nic McGuire is a modern glass artist living in San Diego, CA. Best known as a hot glass sculptor who hand forms molten glass into contemporary art. His glass work incorporates complex sculpture techniques with modern forms and unique color palettes to produce the current series of artwork. The intricate patterns and skillfully crafted forms of glass and metal make each piece of art a unique one of a kind sculpture. Nic enjoys spending his time making high quality original glass sculptures to share the beauty of live with others.
The glass is alive when it is hot, it has a mind of its own and a memory. It has a mysteriousness about it that captures our curiosity. Hard like a rock, yet as transparent as the air we look through. The molten glass has exotic properties compared to other materials you come into contact with on a day to
day basis. It glows with a brilliance of color and emits an enormous amount of heat that challenge me as a sculptor to find a way to control these extreme properties in order to achieve a finished piece of art. Stainless steel armatures bring a new elegance to the sculptures.
