John and Erin Blackwell

John & Erin Blackwell


John started blowing glass when he met a glassblower who gave him a single demonstration. Soon after, he took a glassblowing class at a local university for two semesters where he gained the skill of working with molten glass. He started to rent studio time at a local glassblowing facility where his talents grew quickly.  After he met Erin, he taught her the craft and they started working together on every piece made.

A few years later, they built a small private studio at their home.  This is where they could push their creativity, discovering their unique style.  They work mostly with kane & murrini. Using these ancient techniques with a modern twist is how their art has evolved into what it is today.  Each piece a stepping stone, a learning process, so the next can be even greater.
