Art Glass

Contemporary blown art glass sculptures.

Craig Crystal’s premier “Cowpoke Glass” is his latest new release of sculptured glass.

Blown, molded, sand blasted and enamel fused glass with a primitive comical theme on cowboys. Cowboy sculpted characters with mischievous to comical expressions. Ranging in size from 4 by 12 inches to 6 by 23 inches. Blown colors of reds, blues and white run the rainbow with different colors of fused glass enamels on top of them.

Not the normal floral designed vase, tempting flowers but stand-alone works of fine art with a cowboy statement. Cowpoke Glass has a unique presence in a large open space yet at the same time speaks volumes in a crowded crammed room. is the primary location to view and purchase works by Craig Crystal.
