Glassblower (1995)

Glassblowing, 1995 I studied glassblowing for seven years in college and graduate school. As an undergraduate, SIUC did not have a glassblowing major available to me at the time, so my degree is in painting and drawing, but most of my coursework was in glassblowing. I had to find ways to combine the two fields, and I ended up doing a lot of drawings (etching & engraving) onto the surface of blown glass pieces I made. (Contrary to this drawing, I did not blow glass in the nude.) Available in the gift shop here.

Here’s a couple of images of me from around 1995-1997, blowing glass at SIUC:
