Dave Thompson's Profile

About

I have always enjoyed creating. In fact, I can't stop. I find that if things in my life start to get out of sync, it drives my need to create. Even as a child, I found this to be true. If I was bored, I often felt guilty for not taking the opportunity to develop something. I have explored many different types of art over the years from wood carving, acrylics, watercolors, pen and ink, cold glass, warm glass and glass blowing. Of them all, glass blowing is my favorite because it is a perfect mixture of creativity and skill to develop something that can also be functional. It is an expensive hobby, though, and so when I can't get into the glass studio, I paint or find other creative outlets. I am primarily a self-taught artist, but I have taken glass blowing classes in Richmond, VA and Corning, NY and I'm always looking for ways to learn to push myself into uncomfortable areas and learn through trial and error.
