Jason lives and maintains his studio in Florence, OR.
"I am a full time lampworker and glassblower ..
"I learned the basics of lampworking by one of the masters of American glassblowing, Bob Snodgrass of Eugene Oregon. I have since taken classes from Randall Grubb (at the Eugene Glass School), Hans Ittig (Germany) and David Willis (assistant to Roger Paramore). I have also attended lectures and demos from Million Townsend, Lucio Bubbaca, Cesar Toffolo and many more very skilled master glass workers."
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.
