Michael began blowing glass in 1988 while at the Tyler School of Arts in Elkins, PA. He later completed several workshops with Lino Tagliapietra, a glass master from Murano, Venice, and opened Nine Iron Studios where he continues to blow glass today. His pieces are sculptural, each a work of art and a testament to form and color. Michael thoughtfully juxtaposes bright contemporary jewel-tone colors with a classical sense of line and design. Whether it is his bottles, vases, or pitchers, Michael's glassworks will brighten and compliment any space.
