Chris Vela

Chris Vela (VelaG) started working with glass 10 years ago at Polomar College in southern California. Polomar offered traditional Italian style soft glass. It was there where he found the aesthetic and what he wanted out of glass. To make simple beautiful shapes. His goal is for your eye to follow an elegant line; that is the piece.

 

Ease

Ease began blowing glass 16 years ago in SF. After a short time in the Bay area he relocated to Seattle and joined forces with some of the northwest finest pipe makers. Together they established one of the most influential glass collectives of the time, Glass Works Park. The collaborative approach they explored acted as a catalyst in the industry at a time when it was much less common for multiple artists to work together on the same piece.

I am a Pacific Northwest local, living in Washington state. I have been working glass for 15 years and am stoked to be a part of this cutting edge art community. There are so many different styles of advanced techniques, which is what makes our trade so unique. Most recently I have been working with line work, fillas, lathe work, and crucible techs… striving for clean and technical. I love that I am able to switch up my styles and learn and grow as an artist. I look forward to seeing how our glass community will continue to evolve as well as myself.

He spent many years working in different mediums before discovering glass blowing while attending Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario in 2003. Matt completed Sheridan’s Craft and Design Glass program where he learned techniques in both soft (soda lime) and hard glass (borosilicate) from established international artists. Matt has been living and breathing glass ever since.
