It's a family business...
Jeff is an Oregon Coast native who has been blowing glass professionally for over ten years. He began learning to blow glass right here in Newport over 10 years ago. As time went on he met and was privleged to work with more and more knowledgeable glass craftsman. Over the years Jeff has steadily been acquiring the knowledge to build his own studio. Things came together in 2016 shortly after the birth of his daughter and thus began the family business. Jeff and his wife Amanda live in the area with their daughter Fern.
Amanda moved to Oregon 7 years ago and loves the wild free outdoor spaces here. She is an avid agate hunter and photographer; and has also taken on fusing. Amanda is fusing everything from jewelry to abstract decorative objects.
Fern is in training and wears her safety glasses fervently.
Glass craftsman Jeff...
I live on the Oregon coast and love using glass to express myself. I find a lot of my inspiration and energy from nature and the Pacific Ocean. Living next to a huge body of water and the forces it generates has a profound affect on my life and my works in glass. I enjoy making things that people use every day, taking functional glass items and turning them into works of art that I hope bring a smile to your face, they do mine. I often work solo but my wife Amanda has been assisting me more often. She brings great energy and a fresh perspective in the shop. When I'm not blowing glass I'm off with her and our new baby girl exploring the world.
