some 25 years ago while teaching at Rhode Island School of Design
. There was no Glass Studios in America at the time so he thought he would go west
and start a school for glass blowers.
Pilchuck Glass School is the preeminent place to take or teach a summer seminar. Located in Washington State(on 40 acres of land), it's where the craft is shared and artists go to refresh themselves. There is definetly a west coast spirituality associated with the place and many people come here to reclaim parts of their artistic soul.
