Drawing inspiration from the flora, fauna, rivers and mountains of Northern California, Alana and Hannah of Nicholson van Altena Glass focus on developing work with a natural flow. The vibrant lichen resting on towering pines and the deep emerald pools of the local rivers influence their exploration of layering colors and building textures with glass. Growing from close childhood friends to professional partners, the two have developed a fluid exchange of ideas leading to unique collaborations. Commissions include works in Dubai, Hong Kong, and several US medical facilities. Nicholson van Altena Glass has had the honor of participating in several juried exhibitions including Palo Alto Clay & Glass Festival, Crocker Art Auction, PBS KVIE Art Auction, Craft Nouveau: An International Fine Craft Competition, and National Mother Lode Art Exhibition - Award of Excellence.
