Patrick lives and has his studio in Tacoma, WA.
Patrick has an unusual passion for glassblowing, and it shows in his work. He is our primary source of glass pumpkins, for instance - and he has a wide variety of other extremely popular items.
Patrick is also a frequent guest artist at Ocean Beaches Glassblowing.
As of 2012, Patrick owns and operates his own glassblowing studio - Area 253 Glassblowing - in Tacoma, WA.
This section is intended as more a history of the work this artist has displayed over time at Ocean Beaches Glassblowing & Gallery, and not a catalog of what's currently available. As such, it is useful more as a means of seeing the evolution of an artists' work, rather than a representation of what the artist is currently creating. Techniques, colors used, and even form of color are elements that are likely to change over time. Also, some pieces will be unique combinations of color and movement that artist may not be able to reproduce.
The gallery at Ocean Beaches Glassblowing & Gallery includes work from nearly 50 different artists, all from the Pacific Northwest, almost all from Oregon, and most from Oregon's central coast. Whereas Bob creates his work exclusively within our studio, the other artists have their own studios in which they create their work. Though our gallery basically just purchases their work to sell, we like to promote them in any way we can - which includes showcasing them on our website. Their appearance here is in no way meant to imply that they work for Bob or for Ocean Beaches Glassblowing.
