James (aka “Jay”) is Glassworks’ professor in residence. He knows about the composition of glass, compatibility and glass nuances. Ask Jay about the melting or annealing points of glass or other aspects of glass and he will gladly share his knowledge in a very thorough and understandable manner. He can take a production problem, break it into segments and methodically deal with each issue successfully.
He has many talents in addition to his skilled polishing and cold working abilities. Jay has worked with glass since 1989 and is well versed in blown, cast and kiln formed glass. As a glass artist, his work has been featured nationally and internationally. He can weld, solve challenging installation situations and identify building maintenance priorities – he is truly a “Jack-of-all-trades”. We are very fortunate to have him as a key Glassworks team member.
