“I love pushing the envelope of what glass can do, pulling off new ideas and really making them work,” said Tim Lindemann of the exceptionally intricate glass art that he creates at his studio near the airport. The recently married Santa Barbara native learned about glassblowing 18 years ago while earning his degree in biology at UC Santa Cruz. “I just bought what I thought I needed,” he said, “and have been doing it ever since.” Specializing in chandeliers, decorative art inspired by the natural world, and, more recently, usable art, Lindemann shows his work at galleries and shops throughout the country.
