Jeff Ballard

An artist, teacher, and professional gaffer, Jeff Ballard has been working with glass for nearly 20 years, developing a diverse set of skills. Initially drawn to the challenge of creating and designing intricately-patterned, decorative glass objects, Ballard's interests have evolved into what is now a mixed media sculpture practice.
