(Norfolk, Virginia, 1948 - 2013, Birmingham, Alabama)
Birmingham-based artist Cam Langley drew inspiration from the work of American designer and glassmaker Louis Comfort Tiffany. Over the course of his twenty-year career Langley created a rich body of work comprised of stunning floral arrangements, functional stemware and bowls. Langley’s passion for glass was piqued by the renowned glass collection at Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, located near where he grew up in Virginia. After working for a decade as a civil engineer, he opted to pursue a career in glass, learning his craft through a few studio visits with Harvey Littleton, a couple summer sessions at Penland School of Crafts, and courses he took as a non-degree student at University of Wisconsin, Madison.
