My work is largely about experimenting with light and color. I’m interested in using light, color and technology in subtle ways to create pieces that resonate on a subconscious and playful level.
Having visited many architectural monuments around the world, I am always intrigued by the quality of light from stained glass windows in Gothic churches and architectural screens. With a background in art history, architecture, and digital media, my aim is to create work that surprises, delights, and creates a sense of wonder in the viewer. I’m interested in creating pieces that employ modern technologies, materials, and fabrication techniques together with handcrafted glass and other materials.
Romy Randev began working in fused glass in 2012 with the aim of creating large-scale architectural installations. In 2013, Kind of Blue was selected by the Corning Museum of Glass's New Glass Review 35. In 2014, Randev was a finalist in Bullseye Glass Company's Emerge competition. Between 2007 and 2018, Randev lived in the San Francisco Bay Area where he was introduced to fused glass at the Bullseye Resource Center Bay Area along with an intensive workshop at Pilchuck Glass School. Randev currently lives and runs a studio in Chelsea, Quebec, Canada.
