Nathan Gorman Marbles For Sale


I think Nathan Gorman is one of the most exciting marble/sphere artists to come on the scene in a while - and yet, he doesn't actually blow glass himself currently. That's because Nathan's forte is coldworking the glass, and he has quickly established himself as one of the best in the world in this field when it comes to marbles. The actual glass marbles themselves are created by Nathan's collaborators, Doug Whaley and Gary Joshua. In a nutshell, Nathan takes these 'blanks' which are created for him to his specs, and then begins to use his various carving tools to bring that glass to special life in the way a sculptor would, coaxing form and expression out of previously simple looking spheres, in a way that most of us would have never conceived. In addition to the carving, Nathan employs a lot of different inlay techniques, as well as painting and other methods which bring even more added life and pizzazz to the glass. The end results are nothing short of mind-boggling fascination, immediately invoking that 'How the heck did he do that???" response from all who see them.

Nathan is a fantastic artist who is on the way up, and I have caught him at a point where he is now creating art that reaches for that masterpiece status. Some of his work is delicate and fragile, and so amazing in its artistic fragility that you will seek ways to elaborately protect these pieces for the ages to come, so that many future generations will be able to enjoy their smile-conjuring nature as well. If you are open to the endless possibilities of the sphere, then Nathan Gorman is an artist you will want to seek and collect - mark my words!
