Thomas Spake has been blowing glass since 1994 and operates a studio outside Chattanooga, TN on a 60 acre-hilltop. His work is inspired by the splendor of the natural world. Spake finds beauty in all, whether creating color combinations found in the vibrancy of the seasons, patterns inspired by the play of light on the forest floor, or textures born of centuries of erosion by wind and water.
