MEET Shane Caswell

Local marble artist, Shane Caswell is one of the best! 

He creates torch-worked borosilicate glass marbles~ masterfully combining layers of clear, colored and dichroic glass. His marbles are recognized for their incredible detail~ his attention to exact, controlled design & perfectly smooth surfaces culminates in a precisely round sphere. Perhaps the most admirable quality of Shane's marbles is the color he is able to coax out of the glass. He always turns out milky smooth colors while cleanly incorporating various millies into each design~ these are  oh-so pleasing to the eye.


ENJOY shopping Shane's entire collection of marbles~ find fish, flowers, even Grateful Dead icons playing in his perfectly fun marbles.

~ Saturday, August 2 ~ 10 - 4
