Warner Whitfield

Warner and his partner, Beatriz Kelemen, meticulously design and create each piece using the elements of fire and glass to form timeless works of art inspired by nature.

Warner Whitfield began working in glass in 1972 and apprenticed with master glass artist Fritz Bachman from Hamburg, Germany and established the glass studio in 1976. Beatriz Kelemen began working in glass in 1984 in Venezuela under tutoring from her father, Frank Kelemen, well-known for his work in stained glass. She has a Bachelor's degree in Architecture and a Masters in Project Management from Cal Poly University, CA. Whitfield and Kelemen’s work are shown in many galleries and have won numerous awards at juried exhibitions throughout the United States. 

"Our designs are influenced by diving in the shallow clear waters of Florida and the Caribbean. Combined with our dance instructing careers many of our designs and compositions, particularly those involving the Latticino technique, are reminiscent in feeling of underwater coral reefs and the rhythm of the dance."
