ANDREW HOLMBERG

ANDREW HOLMBERG  ARTIST STATEMENT

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Andrew Holmberg spent much of his childhood outdoors and playing in the garden. As the son of two professional crafts people he began working with his hands at a very early age.  He began blowing glass fifteen years ago while attending university to earn his Bachelor’s degree in sculpture. 

In glass, Andrew found a way to work with color and form that drew on his sculptural training. He began creating glass forms and vessels specifically for outdoor display which opened up a wealth of possibility that suited his vision of creating highly accessible art.

Andrew strives to create art that enables people to add something of themselves to their environment.  He creates each piece individually by hand.  His garden glass is collected throughout the country and has been featured in the Seattle Times, the Oregonian, the Portland Tribune, Pacific Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, as well as on the television show “Your Northwest Garden”.

Andrew now works out of his own studio in Portland, Oregon and is happily complimenting nature’s beauty with his glass, one garden at a time.
