Drawing inspiration from the flora, fauna, rivers and mountains of Northern California, Alana and Hannah of Nicholson van Altena Glass focus on developing work with a natural flow. Their works often highlight both sculptural and blown glass techniques and their environment influences their exploration of layering colors and building textures with glass. Growing from close childhood friends to professional partners, Hannah and Alana have developed a fluid exchange of ideas leading to unique collaborations.
Nicholson van Altena Glass’s works often highlight both sculptural and blown glass techniques. Many works have been commissioned for galleries, as well as residential and commercial projects internationally.
As they continue to explore and establish their artistic aesthetic, Nicholson van Altena Glass hopes to create works with intention and humility that enhances the visual experience of the global community.
