"Glass as canvas to explore personal concepts. Natural elements to create functional design."
Jason Boebinger developed his interest in art at an early age, beginning his journey with glass as an apprentice in 1997. His background in lost wax casting, jewelry making, sculpture, printmaking and painting helped make a transition to the new medium.
"The process of kiln formed glass offers a very close connection to the glass enabling subtle detail and control of shape and color. Maintaining the original artistic goal requires imagination and patience in seeing the work through."
Jason uses glass as a canvas to explore personal concepts and natural design elements to create functional work. He also teaches classes at various studios in the Chicago area. Jason works to bring beautiful glass into the lives of everyone, offering fresh opportunities to expand creative expression through what he believes is a powerful outlet for communication and inner development.
The classes offered at the studio are an exercise in the creative process, during which you will learn what is involved in designing a piece of kiln glass of your own. Whether it's a pattern or an image you are developing, you can be confident in completing your project with great results. Studio glass artist Jason Boebinger will offer guidance and help with any limitations you may come across in completing your finished piece.
