Hal Danser is a Jaffrey resident who designs and creates unique contemporary glass jewelry.
In the mid-1980’s my wife said “Get a hobby!” My response was that I write marketing and business plans and that they are extremely creative (I have a marketing consulting business). However, in subsequent years I did take several glass blowing, flame-working, and fused glass courses. I was enticed by fused glass, and purchased a large kiln and all of the glass fusing/slumping equipment, and proceeded to experiment and learn. Over the course of several years, I refined my style and started to focus on creating unique and contemporary women’s jewelry (necklaces, pendants, and earrings). I have been fortunate to share those wonderful creations at a number of select galleries throughout the United States.
I also love teaching glass fusing at the Sharon Arts Center, the Currier Museum Art Center, and Terrapin Glass. My classes are fun and exciting. The students learn the basics about glass, and make artistic and dramatic fused glass creations, including plates, coasters, bowls, and jewelry. My classes cover fusing and design techniques in making stunning three dimensional works of art using glass frits and stringers, glass paint, full and tack fusing, slumping, draping, cold working, and different types of glass.
Please contact me to see additional pieces in my various Collections or to inquire about my classes.
Hal is a juried member of the Sharon Arts Gallery in Peterborough, the Mill Brook Gallery in Concord, and select galleries throughout the United States, including the Silvermine Guild of Artists in New Canaan, Connecticut, and the Von Liebeg Art Center in Naples, Florida.
