Biography: Jeff Mack
Jeff Mack's career as a glassmaker has offered him a variety of opportunities, from factory production to working and studying with world-renowned glass artists.
He joined the Hot Glass Team in December 2015 as the new hot glass programs supervisor after 17 years spent working in a museum setting, most recently managing the Glass Pavilion at the Toledo Museum of Art, and as a glassblower and instructor at Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village prior to that. Mack's work references traditional techniques and is held in both public and private collections worldwide.
In his September 2012 Instructor Collaborative Residency at The Studio, Mack worked with Laura Donefer to imitate classic vessel shapes in the Museum’s collection, adding crazy “Doneferian” twists, loading them with texture and pattern.
