Johnny Glass (yes, that is his real name) began his glass career in Los Angeles, CA, where he was first introduced to glass at Santa Monica College. He has spent multiple summers studying at Dale Chihuly’s world renowned Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA, where he studied with master glassblowers from around the world. His interests range from fine Italian cane work to the abstract arts of some of Japan’s most crafted masters. Glass by Glass grew quickly from a hobby to Johnny’s full time job. In 2012,  Johnny decided to expand his market and returned to Knoxville, Tennessee, where he grew up, to open Glass by Glass’ east coast mobile hot shop and to finish his education at Tennessee Techs Appalachian Center for Crafts, under world famous glassblower and teacher, Curtis Brock.  He is currently in his senior year and will graduate next fall with a BFA in Glass.  2014 was a big year for his new east coast branch. Johnny gave over 30 days of live demo’s throughout the east Tennessee area from Gatlinburg to Lenoir City. Johnny has shown the live art of glass blowing to well over 60,000 people last year. 1000s of whom said they had never seen it done live before.
