B.S.E.E. at Michigan State University 1977
Glass Blowing at Jacksonville University 2010-2012
Michael's interest in glass blowing began in 2009 while on a Celebrity Cruise ship. The Celebrity Equinox hosted 3 glass artists from the Corning Museum of Glass. Their demonstrations resulted in Michael attending Jacksonville University from 2010 to 2012 to study glass blowing. In 2012, Michael opened his current studio and began blowing glass and attending art shows to display his work.
Michael's wife Maritta makes his passion possible by driving sales, assisting setup at shows and administration of the business. His son Jason is a frequent contributor to the production of Michael's work.
