Ken & Linda Perrin
Atlantic Art Glass is one of the oldest and most successful glass blowing studios in Maine. It is owned and operated by Linda and Ken Perrin. Linda has been a professional glass worker since 1990 and Ken has been a glass worker and studio technician since 1997.
Linda and Ken create a range of decorative glass objects such as vases, bowls, paperweights and perfume bottles as well as an innovative line of blown glass jewelry. Linda blows elegant vases and traditional forms with fluid yet modern aesthetic.Atlantic Art Glass specializes in whimsical blown glass jewelry as well as Ken's "Tide Pool" series of glass sculptures inspired by the beauty of the Maine coast.
These "Tide Pools" are created one at a time out of many layers of hot glass. Sculptural organic shapes evoke the feeling of ocean's edge where myriad creatures live. Made entirely by hand, each Tide Pool is signed, dated and numbered. One such piece is part of the permanent collection of the Davistown Museum.
The line of jewelry features hand blown glass beads in watery blues and greens as well as a rainbow palette of other colors. Regionally inspired, the beads have a matte, sea glass like finish that gives the colors a quiet intensity.
Recently, the couple built a new facility in Ellsworth, Maine which occupies a converted warehouse space of over 3,000 sq. ft. The studio offers a full range of hot glass equipment as well as cold working equipment suited to a broad range of carving and finishing techniques. Now an open workshop where classes and community events take place, these experienced artisans share what they love to do, in a place they enjoy, with people who are excited by the art of hot glass.
