Luce Artist Quote

“With this unique material, I express my conception of the unity of life, the oneness of time and space.” Eric Hilton, Steuben Glass


Luce Artist Biography

Eric Hilton arrived in the United States in 1971 and became an art consultant for Steuben Glass in 1972. Steuben Glass has been producing glassware from colorless, optical glass for more than one hundred years, and Hilton highlights the material’s purity in his mathematically precise sculptures. He is inspired by remote, hostile environments, and his work draws the viewer into a mysterious and seemingly infinite world of turbulent oceans, polar ice caps, and galaxies.
