About the Artist
"Glass is very personal to me, being a medium that requires talent, time, and persistence to accomplish
works that relate natural elegance."
Glass has always been mysteriously captivating for Paul. His
physics professor made several attempts to speak with the art department about getting him to spend more time in the science
lab. It's no wonder that his senior thesis physics project won the all student art show. Glass has given Paul an outlet to
speak artistically while allowing him to challenge himself with the ancient techniques of glass blowing.
soda and a twist of lime. It's not a martini, but at 2000 degrees Fahrenheit you have glass. Gathering glass from a furnace
filled with molten glass is a lot like gathering honey out of a pot. Each time Paul gathers a new layer,he has the opportunity
to add colors, textures and reshape the design of the final form. Once he is happy with his creation, it goes into an annealing
oven to gradually bring the glass to room temperature, ready to find a home.
Paul first learned the art of glass
blowing at in Nebraska were he majored in Physics at Hastings College. His instructors, John Elias, Tom Kreager, Lino Tagliapietra,
Elio Quarisa, and Dino Rosin have inspired and encouraged Paul through out his career as a glass blower. He has traveled to
many studios throughout the world and continues to study at "The Studio" in Corning, New York.
