Sand Carved Art Glass by Cynthia Myers
Cynthia Myers creates exquisite sand-carved art glass in her studio on the remote and beautiful Mendocino Coast of California. The designs feature floral and animal themes. Each image is etched accurately with meticulous attention to the intricate details of the design.
With an eye for subtlety and detail, Cynthia employs a shadowing technique that gives her artistry depth and dimension. She has developed an ever widening reputation for her sand carved glass vases with their decorative exteriors and their innovative cut-away rims.
Cynthia's work is featured in collections and galleries in Europe, Japan, and the United States. She sells wholesale to fine shops and galleries and directly to private individuals. She also creates original pieces on commission.
All pieces are hand blown, made in America individually drawn and sandblasted, signed and dated.
This site features a sample of some of Cynthia's most popular pieces in three galleries. The “Shop Cynthia’s Studio Glass” Gallery features vases and wine goblets which are for sale online. The “Vases and Bowls” Gallery features larger pieces which she sells to art galleries. The “Architectural Glass” Gallery features a few of the one-of-a-kind doors, windows, and other architectural pieces she has created.
Any of Cynthia’s designs can be etched onto glass of a wide range of colors. Some of the designs also can be etched into either bowls or vases, while others work well only on a particular style of vase, bowl, or compote. The designs feature a diverse range of plants and animals, such as Heron, Roses, Dogwood, Turtles, Grapes, Egrets, Clematis, and Fuchsias.
