The Whitten's & Solar Flare Studios

Solar Flare Glasswork & Design was born from the idea of giving back.  As inspired Artists and Makers we want to contribute to the World aesthetically, simultaneously limiting our impact on the earth. 

We are Resourceful Individuals who consider our Handcrafted tools as important as the Art that is made using them.  Over 90% of the equipment and tools in the studio have been created from recycled goods. Designed and built by Kirk. We resourced the metal, kiln bricks, hand tools, marble, glass and so much more.
Kirk & Caitlin
Solar Flare Glasswork & Design's Team. 

Our aim is to Honor Artisans of the past by Using & Preserving Skills that have been passed down for thousands of years.

Our mission is to use modern sustainable methods by limiting our consumption, reusing and resourcing materials available to us. Our equipment is energy efficient and we recycle glass.

We make Fine Art: Glasswork, Metalwork, Cast Sculptures and beyond.
Our art is unique.
 

More about us:

Kirk Whitten 

Kirk is a Master Builder. A Once stifled Artist who worked in construction for many years found out; that it was the Culmination of his skills that would enable him to find the freedom within his art.

“It was all of the skills that I gained as a tradesman, enabled me to build my studio.”

No longer in the building phase of the studio, today Kirk focuses his time on honing his craft, teaching classes and creating beautiful sculptures.

“Glass Blowing is all about finding The Flow.”

Caitlin’s work explores the ideas of looking at the world through a smaller lens. Most of Caitlin’s work includes a supersizing of realistic creatures using multiple mediums such as Glass & Cast Metal. Within all of Caitlin’s Sculptures a series of Fibonacci Numbers can be found.

“I believe that Art is a living conduit and it transcends throughout all mediums. Technique is a tool that helps us execute our craft. Practice is the key to unlocking our True potential.”

Husband and wife team work together to create beautiful artwork.
