Doug Randall creates luminous kiln-formed glass pieces that combine vibrant color with classic and reverent form. The sculptural vessels series entitled “Baskets” and “a Fine Balance” are influenced by his travels throughout the world. Some are inspired by ancient spiritual imagery in shrines that references the gesture of giving within these delicately balanced sculptural vessels. In general, they speak of a point from which the harmonious balance of life should be considered and appreciated. As a continuation of the vessel work, his newer series of “Gondolas” speak metaphorically of one's travel and our lifelong journeys.
Randall has worked with art glass as his main focus for nearly four decades. Following a 3 year professional internship in 1983, Doug worked and trained at the Bullseye Glass Company and the Pilchuck Glass school. Over his career, he has completed many independent commissions and shows his work at galleries throughout North America, South America, and Europe.
