D.H. McNabb

D.H. McNabb grew up as a son of a military officer in Tampa, Fla. His eyes often wandered the globe in his father’s den, seeking to find where his parents had lived and traveled. He dreamt that he too would travel and glass has done just that. Glass has enabled him to see and to learn: a world, a vision, a practice. Corning, Seattle, Prague, Lybster, Weil am Rhein, Murano, Nuutajärvi, and Istanbul are just a few of the places this material has taken McNabb. Glassmakers Stephen Powell, Lino Tagliapietra, and Dale Chihuly, along with others, have helped him negotiate his practice. McNabb says, “I have a memory from all these experiences, a memory though a material. Glass itself has a memory.”
