I found a gun while cleaning out a storage locker area of my apartment back in 2005. My building manager at the time let me set up my studio after gutting the entire place that was full of wood framed lockers (It took 2 months). We found the gun stashed under the flooring of one of the lockers...Once finished I set up my vents and an air intake and rocked it out of that shop for about a year. I grew out of this shop the minute that I bought my GTT Delta.... liquid tanks didn't really make it into this spot and the Delta can sure rage a regular tank FAST!......It was also not the best place for a glass shop.

Artist Statement and Bio

Braden Hammond began his journey as a lampworking glass artist in 2003 at Santa Cruz Art and Glass Studio in California. From that moment, he was hooked on the beauty of glass art and its endless possibilities. He is constantly exploring the techniques and challenges of glass and is an active participant in the growing glass movement.

Hammonds current art focuses on modern expressions using various lampworking techniques. Whether its the clean lines of the Italian retichello pattern or the crisp pedals of the imploded flower, his dedication to perfection is a distinct part of his style.

I strive to push my limits and the limits of glass every day. I am constantly learning, growing and creating new concepts that take my art to the next level. I focus and explore new methods and techniques to follow through with each of my visions.

Hammonds glass art is currently in galleries and boutiques across Canada and internationally. He has been featured in The Vancouver Province Newspaper, the Edmonton Journal and has been nominated as an Emerging Artist in The Flow Magazine, a Glass Journal for the Flameworking Community.

He has taught several classes at Andrighetti Glassworks, Western Canadas largest lampworking facility. Braden Hammond currently resides in Vancouver, BC, Canada with his girlfriend and business partner Kristina Holtz.
