Artist Biographical Statement

Bob Gent has been blowing glass for more than thirty years, most of that time in the studio on Barker, which he built from the ground up. He began blowing glass at the University of Tulsa, and moved to Lawrence to thrive within the supportive art community here. The studio, which has the capacity to melt 100 pounds of glass in the main furnace, is fired up a few times a year, during which time Bob works an intensive schedule to make the most of the resources needed to keep the fires burning. The studio is open by appointment for the week following Artwalk, fir the convenience ot those who cannot make it this weekend. You may also contact Bob any time to visit the gallery and shop for art
