Hib Sabin & Peter Wright: Spirits in Wood & Glass

Hib Sabin is well-known to Stonington’s clientele for his expressive juniper carvings inspired by shamanistic beliefs. Sabin’s limited edition bronzes have been lovingly crafted by fellow artist Peter Wright since 2000, but recently the two have embarked on a creative collaboration of their own. Combining Wright’s love of glassblowing with Sabin’s exquisite carvings, they have created the Animal Spirit Jar series. Both men have long been fascinated by indigenous art forms, and these vessels harmoniously combine flavors from mythic traditions across the world. Each of Wright’s glass vessels gracefully echo the forms of Sabin’s fetish figures, and the craquelure patterning on the glass creates a strong counterpoint to the textured wood carvings.
