Bryan J. Rubino

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.

After Pilchuck, Bryan was asked to work as the Master Craftsmen in residence at the school, continuing to do so one or two sessions a year from 1988 through 1992. Working with Artists from the United States and abroad provided him the opportunity to develop his own style, combining many traditional and modern techniques.

From 1988 Bryan worked frequently with Dale Chihuly and his designers on a number of large projects and became one of his main master craftsman. In 2001 he relocated to Olympia and started his own Glass Studio on Highway 101, designing and producing a large number of products for Chihuly until 2003.

In 2011 the company down sized and Bryan relocated to Seattle Washington. Currently, when he is not working on his own artwork or commissions he freelances, teaching and demonstrating.
