Scott Graham and Cristy Aloysi began their glassblowing careers at Urban Glass in New York City where they became fascinated with the ancient process of glassmaking. The challenge of forming beautiful handmade objects out of this molten material captivated them. While in New York they became involved in the city's energetic art and design world and have brought this influence into their work. After Urban Glass, they went on to study at the Pilchuck Glass School, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and Centro Studio Vetro in Venice, Italy. Scott and Cristy have taught glassblowing at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, NY, Snow Farm in Williamsburg, MA, Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, and at Maho Bay on St John in the US Virgin Islands.
In 2002 Scott and Cristy moved to Seattle WA, the center of the American art glass movement, to create a line of contemporary glass objects for the home. Their goal was to create pieces that are unique in their clean lines and simple designs. The beauty of Viscosity glass is that no two are exactly the same. Each one has been carefully shaped by the hands of the artists creating a uniqueness that cannot be imitated by any machine. Each piece of Viscosity glass is made to order and signed and dated by the artists. When you purchase Viscosity glass you are supporting the 3000 year old tradition of glassmaking and the American art glass movement.
