"In my 30 plus years as a studio artist, I've accumulated numerous skills: Glassblowing, furniture design & construction, blacksmithing, metal fabrication and a few others. I'm fond of saying no material is safe around me.
My current creative drive is based on the natural progression of the materials I work with. With this collection of materials, many of which would be discarded by others, I carefully compose them with care, and assemble them into pieces others find desirable."
Owen was a force of will in the community as well as the art world in St. Petersburg and Tampa. He was a mentor, teacher, philosopher and brilliant artist. He could take imagination and turn it into reality. But more than that he used the same creative power to help people. He touched immeasurable lives. We lost our friend and family member to cancer on June 14th, 2018.
