My name is Bob Heath and I'm a retired Software Engineer who now gets to spend his time making beautiful things out of glass. My glass artwork is typically very colorful and often features geometric patterns with strong lines and sharp contrasts.
I take pride in giving my pieces a professional finish by doing extra things like grinding and polishing the rims. I like to think that I work not only with glass, but also with light. I love opal glasses for their ability to reflect light and create patterns and transparent glasses for the way they transform light and the colorful shadows they cast.
My primary focus is fused glass. Often my designs require the creation of multiple component pieces that are fused separately, then subsequently cut, shaped and fused together to create the whole. I am mostly known for strip-construction work which involves cutting narrow strips of glass and placing them on edge to create detailed patterns, but that is just one of many techniques I employ.
