David and Patti Hegland are a husband and wife team known for their innovative designs, complex construction, and precise finishing of their art glass. Acute attention to detail during each phase of the process is critical to a finished piece of their work. Patti and David's intricate designs incorporate hundreds of multi-layered hand-pulled murrine individually placed within thin strips of clear, transparent or opaque glass placed on edge. Once formed, each piece is extensively coldworked — shaped, ground, sandblasted and polished to enhance the visual impact and feel of the finished vessels and sculpture.
The Hegland's studio is located on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay in historic Chestertown, Maryland. They have taken numerous workshops at glass studios in New York, Washington DC, Oregon and North Carolina and studied with outstanding artists in the field of kiln-formed glass to gain specific technical skills. Patti and David accredit their achievements as glass artists to the combination of that acquired knowledge, coupled with the long hours spent in their studio exploring new designs and techniques.
