Erkdejerk started blowing glass in 2006 but was interested in it far before that. He remembers being really into glass when he was in high school. It wasn't until he was 18-19 and at a party at a friends house did he see glass blowing in person. His friend told him that he had a glassblower in the garage and Erkdejerk spent the rest of the party in that night watching. Erk had a National 2A as his hand torch but quickly moved to a Red Max.
Today Erkdejerk runs a Herbie and he is known for his excellent sculptural and functional work with Kangaroos, boxing gloves, and millies seem to show up often. Currently he hasn't been collaborating as much as he would like but when he does he enjoys traveling and meeting new people. For the latest on Erkdejerk glass, please go check out his Instagram.
