Orient & Flume Art Glass Paperweights & Vases

Orient & Flume was founded by glass artist Douglas Boyd in 1972. The now world-famous glass studio gained its distinctive name from its original location in Chico, CA, which was between Orient Street and Flume Street. After purchasing the property Douglas turned the small historic carriage house that was located on it into an art glass studio that would soon take the art world by storm. By 1973 the progressive glass studio had grown too large for its modestly sized quarters and relocated to Park Avenue where it is still located to this very day. Orient & Flume's early efforts focused on recreating the iridescent art glass made famous earlier in the 20th century by glass makers such as Loetz, Tiffany and Steuben. The unique beauty and originality of their work led to their vases, paperweights and sculptures becoming very popular with aficionados of fine art glass. In later years they shifted their creative focus toward creating three-dimensional designs within clear glass. Orient & Flume's talented team of artists, which includes Bruce Sillars, Jeff Howell, Richard Braley, Scott Beyers and William Carter, work both individually and as a collaborative team to make their beautiful creations. While most of the studio's glass works do typically somewhat conform to a common theme, each artist is allowed the freedom to add their own unique creative touch.

Orient and Flume currently produces not only vases and paperweights but animal, vegetable and fruit sculptures as well. Their art glass can be found in the permanent collections of museums including the Smithsonian, the Metropolitan Museum, the Chicago Art Institute, the Chrysler Museum and the Corning Glass Museum as well as in private collections and galleries all around the world.
