Jeremy and Chelsea Griffith

Jeremy & Chelsea Griffith are a husband and wife glassblowing team. They received their degrees in glass sculpture from Rochester Institute of Technology, and currently maintain a private studio in the rolling hills of Southern Illinois with their two young daughters, Sophiana and Sadelle. 


“This artwork begins as a mass of molten colored glass that is stretched into long, thin rods. Once cooled, the rods are cut into shorter sections, reheated, combined with other colored stringers and stretched again. The results of this process are bars of glass which contain different patterns that can only be seen once chopped into small cross-sections. Thousands of these glass chips are then arranged by hand and melted into a solid glass panel, capturing the movement of the glass while it was molten."
