Art and Wine Auction-Kevin and Belinda Fulton
Growing up in New Mexico, Kevin dreamed of someday being a glass blower after seeing the glass blowing factories in Juarez, Mexico. After an inspirational trip to Europe in 1973, he pursued his dream and studied art at the University of New Mexico, then on to Central Washington University to get his BA in Glassblowing in 1980. He and Belinda moved to Bend that year and built their hot glass studio where they continue to work as a team. Kevin’s work is primarily sculptural with an aquatic theme. The sculpture made for this year’s auction is one of their signature river grass and fish scenes. Each part is sculpted separately with molten glass from the furnace and then assembled later using cold working techniques. They have created numerous public and private installations, their work can be found in galleries and collections across the nation.
