Caleb Noble Glass Artist

Caleb’s fascination with glass began at the age of fourteen when he bought a hand-blown borosilicate pendant as a vacation souvenir. He became fixated with finding out how such a unique and stunning design could be achieved in glass. When he got home he bought a Hot-Head beginners torch and began experimenting with the basics of glass working. Caleb quickly realized that he wanted to learn more of the intricacies of glass art.

It was at this point that he connected with glass artist Brook Hoskins of Wildfire Productions Glass Studio and began to learn the techniques of flame working as well as setting up and managing a studio.

At fifteen years old, he was assisting Brook at his art shows, and by sixteen as a sophomore in high school he was accepted into his first juried art show on his own. After mastering the basic techniques of flame working with Wildfire Productions he built his own studio where he continued to develop his own style and technique.
Each day spent in the studio is a new opportunity to explore the glass medium and create marvelous new glass treasures. Glass working is not about controlling the medium and forcing it in to a specific design, to Caleb glass working is an organic process where artist and medium work together evolving an idea into a unique piece of art.

As a seventeen-year-old, Caleb was invited to exhibit his art at the Chicago Merchandise Mart’s prestigious One of a Kind Art Show and Sale as an emerging artist. Ever since then Caleb has been a professional glass artist exhibiting at many prestigious art shows throughout the Chicago area.

In addition to developing his glass art, he studies Environmental Geology at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. Caleb was born in Lake Tahoe, California and maintains strong ties to the mountain lifestyle of his childhood. He has enjoyed outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, mountain biking and backpacking ever since learned to walk. He draws much inspiration for his art from the love of nature he developed growing up in the Sierras.

“It is the fluid motion of molten glass that attracts me so much to the torch. Borosilicate has quickly become my glass of choice because of the colors I can achieve with striking rods and fuming techniques. I let the colors flow freely to achieve a rich color pallet in each original piece. Glass is truly the perfect artistic medium for me; it allows me to create abstract works while maintaining intricate detail.”
