Moments in Glass: Nicholas Kekic of Tsuga Studios

My Blog Triage classmate, Jackie Jacobson recently wrote about glass artists she knows from the Pacific Northwest.

Which got me thinking about some of my favorite League of New Hampshire Craftsmen glass artists:

Hand-blown Spring Tree wine goblets by American glass artist Jordana Korsen.

There’s Jordana Korsen and her fantastic tree goblets. There’s Nathan Macomber’s beautiful sculptural work, Philip Jacobs’ amazing blown glass lampshades, and Harry Bessett’s wonderful stemless wineglasses.

But my latest favorite is Nicholas Kekic, maker of gorgeous, luminous vases, each exquisitely shaped.

Nick Kekik's frosted hand-blown glass vases add so much joy to our 1840's dining room.

Do you have a favorite glass artist? Do tell… I’m always looking for functional fine art to grace our old home. 😉

  1. Carrie: I have a new want. A piece of Nicholas Kekic’s work has to be in my collection. These pieces evoke whisper in me. They are sensually beautiful and I actually can feel the surface when I look at them in these photos.

    My recent work, which will be posted next week are still lifes, using flowers in vases. I will definitely be in touch with Nicholas.

    In fact, I can feel the surface of your work when I look at it in photos also. Thank you so much for sharing this incredible artist with me and the world.

    • Oh, Jackie! I’m so pleased…

      I’d be so tickled to see Nicholas’ flower vases through your artist’s eye…

      I have so many photos of these new vases… let me know if I can help!

  2. Hi Carrie!
    Your photos are wonderful. I agree with Jackie that I can feel the surface of the glass. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing the work of this artist.
    I want to share with you some local glass artists who I enjoy. I can’t seem to find a website…lots of galleries and this YouTube :

    It’s Paul DeSomma in the video, but he collaborates with his wife, Marsha Blaker DeSomma too. They do sculptural more than functional work.
    I especially enjoy their ocean waves and urchins!
    Anyhow, keep sharing..you’re inspiring me to include the very special artists I know in my own blog, too.

    • Thanks for that great link, Liz… awesome to see glass work in action!

      And thanks, also for the kudos on my photos… Hmmmm… I’m sensing some new possibilities here… a calendar of my favorite League of NH Craftsmen’s work, perhaps?

    • Heh! Indeed! Living on Gabriola Island during the summer of 2003 turned us into regular AIH fans.

      We love getting the perspective of our northern neighbors! Luckily, NH Public Radio carries the program every night at 9pm…
