(Blown glass work by Guido van Besouw)

Colours that glow from within the glass and when held up to the light become incandescent. These provide the keynote of the blown glass of KZN artist Guido Van Besouw.

Guido van Besouw is recognised as one of leading few glass blowers in South Africa. He creates a large variety of glass which he supplies to art galleries, shops and interior decorators around the country. He produces a wide range of work including blown tabletop arts glass, glass lighting, architectural glass and decor glass. Every piece is hand blown by Guido at his studio where sand and fire are transformed into pieces of art. Each glass piece that he creates is individual and uniquely different in colour size and shape.

These magnificent pieces are currently on exhibition at Artisan Gallery. Visit the gallery at 344 Florida Rd, Morningside, Durban or contact us on: 031 312 4364.
