We feel lucky to have such a talented and dedicated team of artists on board.

Brian Bigelow is a glass artist from Wrentham, MA. His passion for glass began while he was stationed with the United States Marine Corps in Okinawa Japan. From one glance of the art while exploring a cherry blossom festival on the island a seed had been planted in Brian’s journey. When returning to civilian life Brian found himself struggling to find purpose and began traveling the world. One morning at 2 am Brian locked in on an idea at a music festival and decided to leave early. Brian pursued glassblowing soon finding Corning Museum of Glass and became a frequent flyer attending many classes. He earned his bachelors of fine art at MassART college in Boston midway through his glass journey and further explored different avenues. Brian learned many different techniques in many different styles before honing in one two specific types, 96 coe at the furnace and boro at the torch. He is committed to glassmaking and loves its versatile nature. Brian has been teaching public glassblowing for the last 10 years and has been a traveling glass artist for 6 years teaching classes from Turin Italy to Cumberland Rhode Island.
