I’m BMFT, Brendan Taylor. I started blowing glass in September 2009 in Tucson, AZ. I’ve been very blessed to get to work some very amazing and talented people and it’s driven me to work harder than I ever have at anything. I try to just make things that have never existed before and push the medium of boroscilicate as much as I can, and I want to do it forever.

Joe Peters

Growing up in western Massachusetts I have been surrounded by an environment rich in the arts. After living and scuba diving in areas of Central America, I gained an appreciation for underwater plant and amphibian life. I have tried to integrate these elements into my handblown glasswork by utilizing a technique called torchwork otherwise known as lampworking or flameworking.

 

Jred

button_view_galleria
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.

Salt

button_view_galleria
Creating these outrageous creatures is, for Salt, a cathartic experience. As an artist Salt infuses the thoughts, emotions and ideas that are relevant to him into his creations, thus exercising his stresses and concerns. At a glance they may seem intimidating or even sinister. However they are actually meant to be companions to the end users and to help those who come in contact with them to relax, gain perspective, and realign their thoughts.
