New Artist ~ Henry Levine
   albany, ohio
WATCH Henry Levine~ NEW glass artistHenry Levine has designed & created glass vessels in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains since 1999. Inspired by ancient Roman glass, he strives to make blown glass work that is both beautiful & useful. He uses a rich medley of colors that glow with translucency & create a sense of depth.  He tries to articulate motion frozen in time~ from the turning of glass, the spinning of Earth, the orbiting solar system, to the twisting galaxy in an ever expanding universe...Henry Levine brings you the magic of glass.
