Glass Artist of the Month: PB Torcher

Now, with 15 years of experience under his belt, Torcher’s work embodies a massive range of genres for glass enthusiasts to admire. “I have a passion for variety and detail,” he says. “And I’m constantly reviewing my own techniques and processes in order to achieve the highest quality glass piece possible.”

He says that his influences have a wide range, which are reflected in his work. He creates glass with beautiful color fades inside precise, classic designs which encompassing horrific products of his imagination or God-like sculptures. TORCHer Glass is now showcased regularly at the CHAMPS trade show in Las Vegas and is available in hundreds of stores across the US and online.
