This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for his handblown glass with engraved designs, Bernard Katz has worked in glass since 1986 and earned his bachelor's degree in Glassblowing and Sculpting from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Following graduation, he worked with glass artists Leon Applebaum, David Garcia, and Samuel Bloom before establishing his own studio.

He is well know for his Tree Series, vessels in a transparent color accented by a darker contrasting layer that is mostly etched away to create the design.

LeKae Gallery, Scottsdale

Biography from The Marshall - LeKAE Gallery:
Bernard Katz creates distinctive engraved designs on handblown glass vases, bowls and sculptural works. Katz’s engraved designs are all original and usually involve either botanical subjects or abstract geometric patterns. He begins by blowing the glass vessel onto which his engraved design will be created. Some are blown in a single transparent color which is encased in clear crystal for added brilliance. He designs and executes each piece himself, using glassblowing techniques that date back to antiquity.

His shapes are created by freely manipulating the molten glass, without use of molds, at temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees F. For his famous Tree Series, he blows vessels in a transparent color accented by a darker, contrasting color. He then uses a sandblasting technique which removes part of the lighter colored glass exposing the darker color in tree designs.
