Tracy Glover

We love the beauty and originality of these glass lamps from Rhode Island artist Tracy Glover. They are perfect companions to our Maine Cottage style. A rich spectrum of sparkling gem tones is complemented by shapes both pure and playful. Each one creates a dazzling focal point in a room and no two are exactly alike. What they share is the vibrancy of color and light. Each lamp is created according to time-honored glass-blowing techniques. view a few lamps on mainecottage.com

    I love the opportunity to come home again! thank you!

    I had Saturday morning art classes at the Gibbes Art School on Queen Street for many years as a kid. That was the start of the circle for me. I grew up on the beaches around Charleston and taught art out on James Island. Any opportunity to spend time once again in this most romantic city is blessed time.

    I am excited to have an opportunity to visit this city again. Our children, now grown, grew up on the beaches of Kiawah and Seabrook Islands, and enjoying the beautiful sights, food, shopping and events of Charleston. My art reflects what I love…and it is because of the beauty of that area…where I had fallen in love with Charleston 30 years ago!!
