Caitlin Burch grew up with glass. An award winning, second generation glassblower; she spent time in the studio with her mother and father from a very young age. Her initial inspiration for working with glass is its inherent grace and beauty. The ability to transfer and capture the organic fluidity of the molten glass in a finished form or vessel she finds absolutely magical and amazing. The fact that she works in two related fields, offhand blown glass and lampwork glass has allowed her the unique and challenging opportunity to incorporate individual techniques and skills of each into the other. Glass is binding. Burchs father has always talked about dancing with the glass and living with it. She believes she finally understand what he means. It is a part of her now, a part of everything she does.
