In the Pacific Northwest, we are blessed with a multitude of talented glass artisans. We first saw Paul Labrie's work in a gallery full of glass artwork and what stood out was not just his talent, but the originality of his work. Our first thought was "this fits in so well with our other gallery offerings" and now, we're excited to be able to include him as a featured artist.
There are numerous artists that illustrate life on a canvas; while others capture it through a camera lens. There are others, like me, who use glass as a medium for showcasing nature at its finest, or leverage it as a means to create modern pieces for today’s contemporary art enthusiasts and aficionados.
My work in glass has provided me with an outlet for expressing my creative side, while also affording me the opportunity to earn a living and raise my family. Though one can never truly master this complex medium, the satisfaction derived from the creative process is truly rewarding.
I am, as always, continuously amazed by my contemporaries who inspire and forever challenge me to push my limits and capabilities to new levels. Glass offers an ongoing and limitless series of possibilities, which I’m confident, will continue to test, yet excite and inspire me for many years to come.
Thanks to the many who came before, and for those now who continue to provide the motivation behind Labrie Glass’ continued success.
Our initial set of offerings are very "animal-oriented" (along with a few vegetables), but be sure to keep watching as we add goblets, vessels, etc. to the "Paul Labrie" section of our online store.
