This glassblowing master sculpts incredibly realistic animals out of glass

  • Grant and his team use reference pictures of animals to create spectacular designs.
  • Some of his work includes Tigers, Gorillas, and Swans.

Artist Grant Garmezy creates spectacular glass sculptures with amazing detail. Using reference pictures, he and his team recreate artistic designs of a variety of different animals.

Garmezy learned to blow glass while at Virginia Commonwealth University but had no intention of practising in the art initially.

Garmezy said: “Kind of before high school I was all about metal. Metalsmithing, jewellery making, sculpture. In the crafts department, I saw glassblowing, I was immediately drawn to it, just curious like, ‘what was going on in this place?’ I had never actually seen glassblowing before. It was just a magical dance that I just had to try”.

Garmezy also sells his sculptures too, which can be found on his website.
