About John's Work
Many of the traditional glassblowing techniques that are practiced today have been passed from generation to generation for thousands of years. And along the way craftsman have left something of themselves in what they have made.
The desire to master my craft, make a living doing what I love to do, and to leave something of myself in my work is what compels me to return again and again to the studio.
When I first started making the pieces that have evolved into my current work I was preoccupied primarily with making simple and elegant classical forms. Over time I began to elaborate on these forms by adding colorful shapes to their exteriors. With the addition of external elements the pieces began to take on more character like attributes. These expressions of character have become more emotional in nature as they have found their way to the insides of the vessels.
