Aaron Jack began working with glass as a teenager at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass. His passion for the material eventually inspired him to earn a BFA in glass from Bowling Green State University, Ohio. Upon graduating, Jack worked at Steuben Glass as an apprentice and worked his way up to a master glassworker. He also creates his own gallery work and teaches glass classes to share his knowledge of the material.
“There are many great artist that have influenced my work throughout the years. Although, I have always tried to created my own style. I work mainly from inspiration and what I find aesthetically pleasing. I do give a lot of credit to the Steuben master glass blowers who I trained with and have given me the technical skills to fully explore the glass. My college instructor, Robert Hurlstone, said ‘If you keep at it long enough, you will find a way to survive doing your art’ and my gaffer, Gary Hughes, in Steuben said ‘Get it hot, and go like hell’! Both are sayings I live by.”Aaron Jack
