About The Artist
Jon obtained a Master of Arts Degree in Glass Sculpture. His Masters show was a group of sculptures which was incorporated blown forms that were cut, polished and reassembled with plate glass. Manipulating molten glass with blowpipes and tools while using traditional blown glass techniques remains his primary mode of glass working.
Jon has applied his ceramic background to the construction of glass furnaces. He currently makes his own crucibles and formulates his own glass batches and castables.
For over seventeen years, during the summer months, Jon has demonstrated his craft for thousands of people. He especially enjoys and continues to demonstrate at the annual Colorado Renaissance Festival in Larkspur. Jon enjoys this open air studio in the Rockies and finds that sharing his seldom-seen-craft with adults and children alike, is still very rewarding.
