About David Wight
David creatively combines his love of the ocean with his passion for glass sculpting.
After studying at Pilchuck Glass School and spending 10 years working with glass and water, he has created his own style of glass sculpting. Through his unique process, he allows the glass to have a life of its own, expressing movement and energy in a way uncommon to traditional glass working.
The artist states, “Water is our life force…With my glass sculpture I work to capture the beauty, grace, and power of water in it’s most dynamic form… the wave. Using the molten liquid of hot glass, I endeavor to create, by hand, a glass sculpture that embodies the essence of movement in water. Each sculpture is distinctly unique”.
He lives in his home town of Bellingham, Washington. Surrounded by the Cascade Mountains and the San Juan Islands, Bellingham offers inspiration to his work as does spending several months of the year in the Hawaiian Islands.
