Dan Alexander

Dan Alexander first became interested in glass after watching a glassblowing demonstration in a small studio in Ohio. He was drawn to the material and compelled to experience it first-hand. He took his first class with George Kennard at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass. He later attended Kent State University, where he assisted many internationally known artists in small workshops and public demonstrations. Dan has worked for several glass production studios. He likes to manipulate glass in the hot state to create sculptural objects and forms, using a unique sense of color and solid bit decoration.
