Tibitu Glass - Taylor Backes Glass Artists - Hand Blown Glass

Tibtu Glass was established in 2002 by William Dexter and Etta Boettger. Tibitu glass is a collaborative work of Taylor Backes Glass Artists. Tibitu Glass is located in Boyertown PA. Tibitu is a workshop studio focusing on the celebration of designers and craftsman with a united goal of creating unique, original design and excellence in craftsmanship.

Artist and designer William Dexter’s work is exhibited in museums throughout the world, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The American Craft Museum and the Corning Museum of Glass. His work is also exhibited at the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto Japan and the Glasmuseum Wertheim Germany.

Will Dexter is known for his massive sculptural vessels magnified by dynamic swirling forms of color among precious dichroic glass. Dichroic glass is a very thin glass which was developed for high technology applications. Dichroic glass has the ability to transmit one color while reflecting another.

I have attached pictures of a few pieces of Tibitu Glass which I have in my possession. Enjoy their exquisite beauty.
