Michael & Sandra
For over 2 decades as a slump or gravity glass artist Michael K has been creating and producing his passion for color and design with glass in his rural southern California art studio, winning numerous awards and recognitions for his fine art.
Michael started his journey in the mid 80’s working in ceramics, designing and selling with a Los Angeles. Then in the 90’s he became deeply inspired by the incredible beauty and diversity of glass so he shifted their focus from ceramics to slumping glass and creating unique vases.
By the early 2000’s Michael opened “Michael K Original’s” allowing his art and creative interests to expand towards designing and creating incredibly beautiful large works of glass art on his own; including his all original dimensional statement pieces for walls large and small as well as commissioned custom art pieces for individuals and businesses. “Michael K Originals” has become a successful art business and this in and of itself, fosters his creative passion through his customers' love of his gravity glass art.
As fate would have it in 2019 Michael was reunited through mutual friends with Sandra Allison after 37 years at a distance. They quickly picked up where they left off all those many years ago. Soon Michael invited Sandra to join him in creating in his amazing glass art business and she accepted. Sandra brings her own set of unique skills and artistic talents to Michaels business as well as apprenticing with Michael in his Glass Art, combining their creativity within their new line “The K2 Kollection”. Since both of their middle names begin with a K it’s a natural fit. Together they Live, Love & Create Art in Southern California.
In Michael’s word’s …
“I love to create shapes within the glass that form embossed images. I use paints, metal leafing, copper wire, and other materials within and on my glass art. When I combine the embossed glass and these other materials, my designs are more dimensional yet structural. I’m inspired by nature and express it through a contemporary design eye by combining nature like driftwood, seashells and other natural influences in my art. I truly enjoy helping clients with unique designs created just for their home.”
In Sandra’s word’s…
“Expressing artistically through the medium of glass has been a new and exciting creative adventure for me. I have been able to combine my ceramic art designing within the gravity glass bringing another natural flair to our Art. Having interior design experience and a love for design, I too thoroughly enjoy assisting our clients in creating the perfect piece for their home sanctuary”.
