glassblowing documentary

my grandfather is considered to be one of the pioneers of the American Studio Glass movement.


His work in glass debuted in the 1970 exhibition, ‘Objects USA’, alongside the works of studio glass pioneers such as Marvin Lipofsky, Dale Chihuly, Fritz Dreisbach and Richard Marquis.

I didn’t fully understand the gravity of his influence on American craftsmanship until after he passed in 2012. To educate myself about his life’s work, I shot this documentary through the lens of people he influenced the most in his lifetime.
