I employ classic Venetian techniques coupled with vivid coloration to attempt to capture the eye of the audience.
Michael has been blowing glass for 10 years, since catching the “bug” on a Celebrity Cruise ship which had 3 artists from Corning Museum of Glass giving demonstrations on board.
Michael attended Jacksonville University for two years and then opened his own studio in Longwood, Florida, where he translates his vision into glass during the weekdays. He sells his creations at art fairs throughout Florida on the weekends. Michael is greatly assisted by his wife Maritta at the art fairs. Visitors are always welcome at the studio, but it is suggested that you contact Michael ahead to make sure that we will be working when you arrive.
