I've been blowing glass since 1997. I've worked in production factories, glass institutions and private studios making & teaching glass blowing to all ages. My glass work can be found in galleries, museums, and private collections nationwide.
Since 2013 I’ve worked for the Bay Area Glass Institute. We provide glass making experiences for all ages. For the last few years I’ve been traveling the country making and selling my glass.

I've been awarded best in Glass and honored as a featured artist at several shows coast to coast. I began my own mobile glass studio to offer glassblowing, fusing and corporate team building classes, sharing what I love as I travel.

Now I set up my glass studio in Arizona for the winter and upstate NY in the summer. There's no way I'm blowing glass in Phoenix in July!

It was really memorable experience and if I am back in Arizona, will definitely go back again. Greg was very kind and flexible to change the experience as we wanted and even cared to meet us somewhere else for the pickup of our artwork!

From the moment we walked up to our meeting spot, we felt like we were meeting an old friend. Despite hosting done numerous classes over the past several days, Gregory’s enthusiasm never wavered. He made my son (13) feel particularly special, joking that his paperweight was so nice he may have to keep it for himself. My daughter (16) was entranced the entire time. Gregory took the safety aspect of the class seriously, yet allowed us to feel we were completely immersed in the creation of our first project. I can’t recommend this experience enough! We will definitely do this again in the future!

Gregory’s glass blowing class was everything we hoped for. He spent the right amount of time covering safety and explained steps to complete the project before beginning. He also helped each person through the steps so each of us were sure to successfully finish our project. Thank you, Gregory!

amazing opportunity! Not a commonly seen art and even less common to be able to learn how this is done. Gregory was fantastic and really wanted everyone to enjoy themselves while making a one of a kind piece of art. He goes out of his way to make sure everyone has a good time. Gregory is very personable, patient and accommodating to the group. You can tell he really wants everyone to love the creation they are making. I wasn't positive this would be a good use of my time during my short visit to Arizona. But is was so worth it!!! I highly recommend this hands on class.

This is one of the coolest things I've done for a couple hour class. lots of fun, we weren't rushed, and the art around the place was breathtaking!
