Parris-Roche Studios


"Art is the imposition of a pattern on experience. Art enjoyment comes from recognizing the pattern."

--Alfred Whitehead

This statement, more than any other, describes our work.

Brian Parris began studying art and literature in the early 1970’s, graduating from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1978.

After years working in marble, granite, ceramics and glass, he settled on marble and glass as the medium for our designs. Brian’s approach to design defines our studios creative output.

"Most people relate to blown or sculptural art glass by recognizing patterns, shapes and colors that are familiar to them. Knowing this, I decided to include this perspective in our glass art. Each design is inspired by familiar images of the natural world and celestial phenomena that make life and art possible. This approach to design links patterns of experience with people’s impressions of the art glass they’re exposed to. Art glass processes are primordial in nature. This reflects the origins of the materials we use which first came into existence within the nuclear furnace of celestial bodies. Each design is a tribute to the genius of creation and a validation of our unique existence." Brian Parris

Opaque and translucent colors are layered with clear to transmit, illuminate and magnify light as it passes through or accumulates within each design.

These gem like qualities are unique to the glass medium which helps explain why glass art has been in continuous production for over 5,000 years.

Each design in our collection is accompanied by the modeling images used to inform the process that created it, including a description of the steps that transformed this white hot 2,200 degree liquid medium into heirloom collectible sculptures and blown vessels.

Our designs are displayed in galleries, boardrooms and private collections throughout the world.
