Glass sculptor Hugh Findletar turns heads with anthropomorphic vessels of exuberant spirit and beauty

Hand-blown in the form of friendly faces, Hugh Findletar’s signature glass vases are so full of personality that he refers to them as Flowerheadz. “I’m creating a population,” re ects the Jamaican-born artist, now based between Milan and Venice and working out of the historic Murano ateliers. “The glass takes on its own form based on the heat, so the control you have is limited. One brother will come out a certain way, and its sister will come out looking a little different. It becomes like a family.”
