The Art and a Science of Glass

I was introduced to the art of glass blowing while studying for a degree in Materials Science and Engineering at M.I.T. After graduating in 1983 I returned to Seattle and worked as a glass blower for 4 years. In 1987 I left for 5 years of travel which included living and working with artists in Finland, Germany, France, and Ireland. In 1992 I returned to Seattle and established my own studio hot shop. My work is an extension of my technical background in glass science and love of the traditions and history of glass blowing throughout the world.
