A Little About Bryan
Bryan Rubino began blowing glass in January of 1982 for a small Seattle glass company. In 1984 he was introduced to the Venetian style of glass blowing. Bryan began working with other young glass blowers that had also been inspired by the style. In 1987, he received a scholarship to attend a class at the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington. The class, which combined technique and design also focused on the Venetian style of glass blowing. In the years from 1988 through 2003, Bryan worked frequently with Dale Chihuly and his designers on a number of large projects. In 2001 Bryan relocated to Olympia and started his own Glass Studio on Highway 101 near Shelton. In the fall of 2011 Bryan down sized his company. Currently, when he is not working on his own artwork or commissions he freelances, teaching and demonstrating.
