David Murray

Biography
David Murray’s work is an exploration of the boundaries of cast glass. The work itself is an illustration of the artist’s technical mastery of the medium and also shows the extent to which he has applied this ability, in order to create a striking piece of art glass. Technique and creativity are not always compatible in the difficult process of glass making, but Murray has honed his craft such that his intent and ability are not at odds. This is the mark of a very accomplished artist
