Description

Hermit got started on the torch in 1998 in San Diego. He had always been drawn to glass work, since first seeing artists work the torch at Disney Land as a child. He started his lampwork journey in ’98 at a company called Glass Distractions. Around a year later he moved up north to start learning from Arik Krunk, who influenced Hermit’s chaos style in a big way. This includes Arik showing him the thumbprint stack, which is a staple of the Hermit style today. Hermit continued taking classes to build his skill set, from artists like Casare Tofollo, Nancy Hagel, John Kobubki, Josh Sable, and others.

After the absurdity of Pipe Dreams in 2003 he took a teaching job at the University of San Diego at La Jolla. He returned to lampwork later and has established himself as a glass artist with his colorful chaos style. We’re excited to add Hermit Glass work to our little gallery!

This is Hermit’s large chaos Sherlock. Amazing color on this with boro and fuming coming together. The fume in violet and yellow float over the honeycomb fume and thumbprint stacks below, and it looks great. Colorful cane decorates the bowl and mouthpiece. Thumbprint stacks in the stem and can add a lot of color. The bowl is fully worked with silver honeycomb and cane too. One white and blue flower marble decorates the stem. Beautiful glass art by Hermit Glass!

Held upright so it wouldn’t spill, this is 4.5 inches deep, 1.75 inches wide including carb, and 3 inches high. This is a medium Sherlock that leans toward a small. Beautiful heady glass and so much color! Colorful chaos style by Hermit Glass!
