Marty Hook and Janet Sweeney


Marty Hook and Janet Sweeney have been creating together original works of art related to the ocean and its creatures for several year. Their unique use of layers of colors and accurate reproduction of the forms of shells, crabs and other sea creatures have gained them increasing notoriety in the glass world. Marty Hook began his adventure in glass in 1978 at Shasta College in Redding, CA . He studied glass blowing under Cliff Sower for 2 years. He then studied for 2 more years under well known artist, Martin Lipofsky at the College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA.

Some of the artists he has done collaborative projects with are Gianna Tosso, Jiri Harcuba, Chioga Asahara, Chris Wilmarth and Ann Warf.

In glass we explore, create and elevate the spirit and mystery of nature of which we are a part. Nature connects us to society and reminds us to have compassion towards all living things. Our experience with nature has inspired us to reflect its beauty, peace and wonderment."
