Jon Goldberg's interest in hot glass began in Old City, Philadelphia. He was fascinated by the variety and expressiveness of the glass art on display at a local gallery specializing in Studio Glass. The opportunity became available to take a course in hot glass at a local public-access studio. Jon took his first class in 1999 and was hooked.
As Jon continued to develop his skills, he took classes in many different glassblowing techniques at the Studio at Corning Museum of Glass, ranging from traditional Venetian glassworking to contemporary plasma-neon techniques. He has studied with many great contemporary glass artists, including Josh Simpson, Elio Quarisa, James Nowak, Mark Matthews and William Gudenrath. >>More Info
