Biography 

John Glass has made it his mission to bring a new awareness and interest back to the art of glass he loves so much.

John Glass (yes, that is his real name) began his glass career in Los Angeles, CA, where he was first introduced to glass at Santa Monica College. He has spent multiple summers studying at Dale Chihuly’s world renowned Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA, where he studied with master glassblowers from around the world. His interests range from fine Italian cane work to the abstract arts of some of Japan’s most crafted masters. Glass-blowing grew quickly from a hobby to John’s full time job. By 2009, Glass had taken on his first two employees and started traveling the west coast art show markets, with great success. In 2012,  Glass decided to expand his market and returned to Knoxville, Tennessee, where he grew up, to open Glass by Glass’ east coast mobile hotshop and to finish his education under world famous glassblower and teacher, Curtis Brock. Since 2015, John has given over 60 days of live demo’s throughout the east Tennessee area from Gatlinburg to Lenoir City, as well as shown the live art of glass blowing to over 60,000 people, and featured on many local TV news shows.
