Chris Ahalt is a flame worker and has been perfecting his art since 1998. He apprenticed with Italian master, Cesare Toffolo, in Venice, Italy where he learned the traditional techniques of high quality Venetian glassmaking. Most recently, he has garnered much press and admiration for his current Balloon Animal series, hollow glass animals balanced and strung up on copper wire to give the illusion that they are floating. They are deceptively effortless but demonstrate his brilliant design.
