William Ortman

William Ortman has a Bachelors Degree in Fine art with a focus in Glass Blowing. His objective as an artist is to create aesthetic forms using incredibly rich colors and textures. There are many reasons to work with glass, but what really hooked him was the opportunity glass provides to play with color.

“Glass allows for variations of intensity of hue, tone, and depth and he has always been captivated by the way colors come to light on a glass surface. Glass can do everything that other sculptural media can; in addition, the ways in which color can be layered on glass provides a unique three-dimensional quality of depth.” – William Ortman
