Ed Pennebaker and His Glass Studio


Visited Ed Pennebaker in the Ozark Mountains a couple of weeks ago, when I was seeking out talent for one of my corporate clients.  Fantastic glass artist in Northwest Arkansas, not far from Eureka Springs.  Cool studio–and if you think that’s cool, you should see the cabin.  


Now I know you’re going to think his work is a bit close to Chihuly, but the truth is Chihuly was influenced by a Venetian technique.  And while he expanded on that brilliantly, he wasn’t necessarily the first to do this.  Ed’s work, once you know the intricacies of it, is quite different.  Besides, he and Chihuly have exchanged letters about same.  Either way, I look forward to having the work in the gallery.
