When Adam G isn’t searching the world for the most rare baller 80’s gear, he’s most likely sipping Mai Tai off the coast of a tropical island. These activities combined with fresh young coconut water, cupcakes, Siberian huskies and the color green are what makes up his signature glass style. Watching the movie Weekend at Bernie’s 4 has refined his style to focus on color selection, flow and attention to detail. He resides in the mile high city of Denver, Colorado at 5280 feet above sea level.

When I first set sail 14 years ago I was glassy-eyed and full of wanderlust, yet I had no clue how deep and wide the sea really was. As I careened from port to port I acquired and traded various techniques but grew tired and weary from the scurvy and monkey pox flareups. Finally, after 11 years aimlessly adrift an old friend waved me back into a familiar harbor and I instantly realized that my home was there all along. My old shack was just as I had left it, and still stashed beneath the floorboards were heaping mounds of dichroic gold, intricate line-work, and 10 tons o' cane.
My career as a glass blower started with a broom in Eugene Oregon. I had taken several jobs to put myself through college one of which was helping clean up in a local glass shop. I was immediately drawn to blowing glass. In September 1995 I began working on the torch. Within six months I needed more. I left college and my jobs to pursue glass blowing full time for myself.
Forged from the heart of an oak tree and born deep in Bigfoot country southern Oregon, my journey in life began. Destined to be a self sustained artist I quickly dove into the stereotypical life of a "starving artist" with little to no income. I learned fast and found my way doing odd jobs to support my habit of painting on windows or detail accents on cars, some T-shirt designs and lots of drawings on whatever I found cool at the time. Glass found me in the mid 90's like a moth to a light I could not look away. April 5th 1996 I lit my own torch for the first time under the guidance of my younger brother Carsten Carlile.
