John Bassett uses recycled materials, including bottles, plates, wood windows, and construction scrap to create original works of glass art.

"I'm happy in the rich, associative world of recycled glass, especially bottles, and other found objects. I'm focused on that most conventional quality of glass, its transparency. Not flat, not round, my work might be called glass relief."

John has a background as a carpenter and an architectural draftsman. His Uncle Richard Bassett (an artist) encouraged him to paint and draw when he was young sparking his interest in the arts. Although self-taught in glass work John has been working with this medium since 1979.

"If there is consistency in what I make it is in the re-use of old stuff. I’m interested in the richness of shape and texture of glass produced by slumping and fusing. I’m interested in light, structure, line, texture, balance, and color in that order. I also enjoy things that are funny. If my glass makes someone laugh, that's good."

John Bassett
"A clever and generous man, Joseph LeBeau, worked for my grandmother and made wonderful toy machines from scrap wood, recycled nails, and left over house paint. He gave these toy machines to any kid who wanted them. I think I learned from Joseph LeBeau the joy of making things, the possibility of using recycled, discarded materials, the possibility of making something from nothing, and the fun of sharing."
