David Buck began his career with glass in 1974 when he was hired by Corning Glass Works where he worked in some of their various glass forming facilities. In 1984, he was offered an apprenticeship in the Steuben factory where he received his artistic glass-blowing training. After 12 years with Corning Glass Works he quit and moved to Maui, HI where he feels he received his greatest inspiration for his current work. In 1990 he moved back to Corning and helped co-found Studio Access to Glass, Corning’s first public teaching facility. After 6 years of developing teaching programs, he spent the next 4 years as Head Technician at the Corning Museum’s new public teaching facility. Tired of the corporate life David and long-time friend Richard Williamee opened their own studio in Lindley, NY, located just outside of Corning. David currently resides in Corning, NY.
