Glass working isn’t easy, but the result is totally worth the effort. For Scott Bisson, this truth became apparent when he bent his first glass tube in school, and it soon developed into a serious passion for hand-blown glass works. Scott’s most famous pieces depict frogs, lizards (geckos), snakes and various sea creatures, especially octopi. It is with the octopi that his skills are the most pronounced, because their smooth delicate shapes require the utmost attention of the glass craftsman. From the bulbous head and body to the tips of the tentacles, it’s a work of both art and love.
