The trademark of Chatham Glass Co., established in 1987 by artist Jim Holmes, is the daring use of brilliant color. Drawing continued inspiration from organic forms and his serene coastal surroundings. Jim executes each piece with an unswerving dedication to simplicity and beauty while incorporating a distinctive flair for expressive and vibrant color combination. Jim employs traditional methods that are thousands of years old. Creating each piece individually at the end of a blowpipe, he patiently works the glass at temperatures in excess of two thousand degrees Fahrenheit to shape a form that combines artistic integrity with a contemporary, bold aesthetic. Each piece is dated and signed with the name of his studio, Chatham Glass Co.
