Randi F. Solin has been committed to the art of blowing glass for over 25 years, dazzling collectors and colleagues alike with her exceptional technique, skill and highly inventive coloration style.
The recipient of many Best in Show Glass Awards, her work has been acquired by the permanent collections of the White House, The U.S Embassies in Algiers, Guinea,Cape Verde, Conakry, Africa,Paraguay, Guatemala and several museums.
Solin incorporates techniques found in both Venetian glassblowing and the American Art Glass movement.
However, atypical to the art of blown glass, she takes a two-dimensional approach to her work; assigning her pieces a “front” and using a composition of color, working much like a painter to a canvas. Solin’s coloration process is complex and varied, using layer upon layer of glass in all particles sizes, and often incorporating sheets of fine silver,or hand drawing in black glass cane.
The optics of Solin’s work-the cut polished top-is an integral piece of her process,her signature of sorts,and an important component of her work.
