Cristy Aloysi & Scott Graham, a husband & wife team are best known for their crisp contemporary forms and use of vibrant contrasting colors. Originally focusing on vessels, the couple stretched the limits of traditional form to create unique and stimulating objects. Blown glass has traditionally been thought of as something for in the home. With their latest work Aloysi & Graham are exploring glass as a sculptural element in the garden. The captivating light qualities unique to glass as a medium come to life when placed in nature. Aloysi & Graham strive to create a unique environment, drawing the viewer in to reexamine the existing habitat. Their use of vibrant colors lends an element of playfulness and contrasts with natures more muted backdrops. Their work is both inspired and complimented by natural shapes and plant forms.
Scott Graham & Cristy Aloysi, met at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, NY, and began working together. The challenge of forming beautiful handmade objects out of this molten material captivated them. While in New York they became involved in the city’s energetic art and design world and have brought this influence into their work. After Urban Glass, the couple went on to study at various studios in the US & abroad from the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA to Centro Studio Vetro in Venice Italy. In 2002 Graham & Aloysi moved to Seattle WA, the center of the American art glass movement, to create a line of contemporary glass objects for the home. After 11 years of refining their skills in Seattle the couple moved to Boulder Creek, CA. In the serene beauty of the redwoods they continue to design and create original blown glass pieces.
