Ed Branson

"My work explores the innate relationship between the nature of glass and the organic forms and colors of our environment." Ed Branson's work focuses on the creative glassblowing process. While trained and experienced in a variety of traditional glassblowing techniques, he chooses to stretch his knowledge and experiment as he explores the nature of the glass. His curiosity and inventiveness have led him to discover many new techniques that he incorporates in his pieces, whether he is working with opaque, transparent, ladled or blown glass. His pieces capture the beauty, color and form of the medium, but also some of what he considers the 'magic' of glassblowing.

"I'm not trying to create new forms and colors as much as I'm trying to discover them. Mastering glass is in understanding it, not controlling it." “Since 1982 glass has had a constant presence in my life. Our relationship has been enhanced and explored with some of the world’s glass masters, but predominantly my knowledge of this magic material is built on day-to-day experience and practice in my studio. This path has led me to a fairly simple artistic approach; trust the glass, have fun, accept mistakes, study nature and search for beautiful forms and colors inherent in glass’ personality”
