Elev8 Glass Gallery LOVES glass. Without these amazing glassblowing artists, this industry would not be where it is right now. Pushing the limits of borosilicate glass art in new designs coming out all the time. Enjoy looking through the collection of blowers here in our list. If we have been able to get an interview the link from the glassblowing arts name will take you to the interview. If we have glass on our site their image will take you to their glass, and their Instagram name will take you to their Instagram to see all their work and delve into their lives. When you support local glassblowing artists you are supporting the glassblowing movement and give these people the ability to reach their glass art dreams.
As glassblowers, we love to get to know other glassblowers. First glassblowers are a very unique group of people living a true counterculture lifestyle. As a 14-year glass blower I am fascinated by the questions why do you blow glass. As I know what goes into the glass I wonder that same question all the time. I think in order to be a glassblower you must be a bit crazy, a dreamer and have the ability to let shit slide off your shoulders. Most blowers call that water bowl or metal bucket their hopes and dreams. As we learn glass we learn a lot of what not to do and end up with a lot of broken glass. Only after grasping glass can a person finally get past the breaking stage. Yet each time a blower expands their skill set then end up in a place where they are learning and shit happens. The second thing that blows me away about glassblowers is their undying attempt to improve their art. It's so neat to watch a blower grow, which I have had the pleasure to watch over 30 blowers grow. Here we will begin to post glassblower interviews to see what makes them tick, what they love about glass and gosh darn it, do they believe in E.T.s? We hope you enjoy our attempt at interviewing these glass artists.
