 Artist Statement

eric-dandurand“I imagine my works as being in families for generations, as being initiators of conversations and as being sources of joy for their guardians. I am proud to be a glassblower. I admire both the creative and technical aspects of glass.
It is a fascinating medium that enables me to go into that no-time zone and flow.”

-Eric Dandurand
