"My passion for glass all began in the hot glass shop during my studies at Portland State University in Portland Oregon, the year 1975. Then in 1980 I opened a stained glass studio in Multnomah Village located in Southwest Portland. I completed my Bachelor's degree in Art at Western Oregon University in 1993. Continued glass studies at Bullseye Glass in Portland and Eugene Glass School in Eugene Oregon. Jadenglassworks established in 2007. Traveled to juried art festivals in Nebraska, Missouri, Montana, Wyoming, Washington and Oregon during 2010. Lost ice casting with Joseph Harrington from the United Kingdom in 2013. Instructor during Glass Stock West in 2013."

Jim had lived in Oregon for decades, but now resides in Brownville, Nebraska, where he runs River View Glass. 


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.
