A_Hensley_4Meet the Artist Austin Hensley

 

My obsession with glass began as a young child wandering the workshops of the Renaissance festival. Marveling at the beauty captured in the glasswork.

After nearly eighteen years my passion only continues to grow, reconnecting me with the excitement of my A_Hensley_1childhood.

Glass is the most wonderful medium I have ever encountered. It has a life of its own and a versatility like none other. I create sculpture, marbles, and pendants but enjoy the challenge of creating new things.

The ability of art to create a narrative and how form can evoke emotion inspires me to step outside of my comfort zone and push the boundaries or my work to greater heights.
