Tim Lazer

Lazer approaches his art with a combined love for the medium, a gifted technique and the knowledge that the fugitive nature of hot glass will forever present a challenge. His philosophy about nature of his art is ever-changing as his work clearly reflects. AS he attempts to control what might be considered an uncontrollable medium, the direction of his designs often evolve and take new forms.

Lazer's love for the medium of glass began more than thirty years ago at Palomar College under the influence of Val Saunders. His education in the art glass blowing continued at CSU Fullerton. During these early years, Lazer often spent sixty hours a week over the furnace to learn and perfect the techniques he uses today in off-hand glass blowing. This process allows Lazer to create specific glass shapes by using multiple layers of glass, often using glass powders and precious metals which are fused or melted onto the glass surface to achieve lustrous, iridescent, opalescent, opaque or transparent pieces. More recently, Lazer's virtuosity was influenced by his studies with Italian glass master Lino Tagliapietra at the Corning Museum Glass Center, New York.
Working in his northern California studio, Lazer focuses on combing beauty and function to produce vases, perfume bottles, paperweights, platters and ornaments.
