Chris began his glass work career in Florence, OR and started selling his work in our gallery shortly after. A few years ago he got an oppurtunity to open his own Studio and Gallery in Lompoc, CA which he took. We still carry his work because it's hand-made and he got his start here on the Oregon Coast.
Chris specializes primarily in torchwork, but has also assisted extensively in the soft glass arena - particularly with Charlie Lowrie, a renowned glass sculptor. Recently, he's been working in soft glass on his own at a local Hot Shop.
Chris's torchwork is presently focused on wine bottle stoppers, pens, and small sculpture, of which he creates some fantastic designs!
