Roger Gandelman Perfumes at Smith Galleries

Smith Galleries features a selection of Roger Gandelman's exquisite hand blown glass perfume bottles.

Roger writes..."I am a glass artist and have been blowing glass for 30 years. Early in my career I decided to put the bulk of my energy into making art glass perfume bottles. I believe I am the only glass artist in the country, perhaps in the world, who has devoted his full artistic efforts into making this object. My bottles, although small in scale, make a grand statement.
I see perfume bottles as small, elegant treasures; made to be turned, touched, and relished. I strive to make the form organic, smooth, and familiar, with very few sharp angles. The lip is simple and unobtrusive. The interior decoration adds life, movement, and dimension to the piece."

Smith Galleries features perfumes by several other American glassblowers. Gallery hours are 10 - 6 Monday through Saturday. Be sure to join our E-Club.
