Hard working Auto Technician finds glass blowing passion.

John Krizan is an Iowa artist living in Coralville. He finds inspiration in both the natural and industrial environment around him. These sources of inspiration can be seen in the patterns and palette he chooses to shape and decorate the elegant glass forms he makes by hand. John Krizan is creatively driven by curiosity and a desire to use his hands to understand and respond to the world around him. These two creative impulses informed his practice as a mechanic for many years and the time he spent working on cars has served to hone his skills for problem solving and building; using his hands and mind together.

Seeking to leave the field of automotive repair, John enrolled in Kirkwood Community College earning an Associates Degree in Applied Science in 2014. While attending KCC John took all of his elective courses in the Glass Area of the 3D Arts Department; sparking and nurturing a passionate interest in working with Hot Glass. John is currently working for KCC as a Studio Technician for the Ceramics, Sculpture and Hot Glass Studios. He is also producing and promoting his own work through the internet and at local shows and sales. John is working toward building a mobile hot glass unit to better showcase the hot glass process to the public and to provide more opportunities for himself and others in the community to access the magic of hot glass. In addition to educating the public about glass and promoting glass as a creative medium, John Krizan is interested in lighting design and making one of a kind functional and sculptural works in glass.
