WHEN THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT INSPIRES: BEAUTIFUL GLASS RIVERS TABLES BY FURNITURE MAKER GREG KLASSEN



  • When the natural environment inspires: Beautiful Glass Rivers Tables By Furniture Maker Greg Klassen

Have you ever sit in one place and see the river flowing right on the table front you? If so, perhaps you are looking at one of Klassesn’s works!

Greg Klassen, a Talented Washington-based artist and furniture-maker, builds intricately designed tables and other objects embedded with glass rivers and lakes as artistic statements from his workshop in Lynden. Finding inspiration in his wife, three little kids and the beauty of the trees, rivers and fields of the Pacific Northwest, Klassen works with edge pieces from discarded trees (often acquired from construction sites, or from dying trees that have begun to rot) which he aligns to mimic the jagged shores of various bodies of water. The pieces are completed with the addition of hand-cut glass pieces that appear to meander through the middle of each table. I try to marry the natural beauty of the wood with the skilled craftsmanship of the maker. When the two come together, a piece can really sing!”, said Klassen, who has a degree in theology
