"My work is about groupings of objects — forms in a series all designed to work collectively in relation to each other, with an underlying design element which carries a theme throughout."
Jonathan Winfisky is concerned with the interplay of his designs, generating soft, sensual forms that build repetition to create complex patterns rich in color and texture. These blown and cast vessels exhibit elegance through the use of simple lines and jewel-like colors embedded within clear glass.Each piece is created by hand in a renovated 100-year-old barn that serves as Winfisky’s studio. Settled in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, he finds inspiration in the landscape as well as in the sensuous and spontaneous nature of hot glass.
We are a husband and wife team who opened this shop for our hand blown glass work, and great vintage jewelry finds.
Combining a one of a kind sense of style and 40 years of experience in the art market, glass artist Jonathan Winfisky and painter Lesley Grow-Winfisky opened Grow Gallery with a fresh perspective on the concept of a gallery.
Our individual experience in the art world as artists has lent us a unique perspective on what buyers want. In a questionable economy, the ability to provide people with creations that are not just beautiful works of art, but are reasonably priced and have a function, is crucial. To give and collect something created by hand with care is still very much desired by many buyers.
Art is still alive!
It just needs the right outlet to flourish. We at Grow Gallery feel that as artisans running our own gallery, we are committed to reminding a discouraged market that there is collectible and affordable artisan made work available. Everyone should have the opportunity to appreciate, and own a piece of their imagination. Let us assist you in finding the perfect jewelry accessory or art piece for engagement or every day!
Lesley has always loved history, jewelry and objects of all kinds. "It is fascinating and romantic to me to imagine who may have owned a piece and the places it has been in its lifetime. Having worked in the jewelry, antique and craft industry for over 12 years I have learned about restoration, identification and valuation of items and precious gemstones. It is with this knowledge and passion that I bring to you my fantastic and unusual finds!"
