About Ross Richmond: Ross’ pieces are typically narrative, working mainly with figurative elements and symbolic objects.

Ross started working with glass at the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1991. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art with a major in Glass and a minor in Small Metals (jewelry). He has studied and taught at many prestigious glass schools across the country including the Penland School of Craft and the Pilchuck Glass School. In 1997 Ross began working as an apprentice to William Morris becoming a member of his team in 1999, working alongside Bill until his retirement in 2007. Ross has had residencies at the Tacoma Museum of Glass, Toledo Glass Museum and Corning Glass Museum in the last few years. His work currently shows at a number of galleries across the country, and he has taught in the US and Canada.

About David Walters:

David uses his glass forms as a canvas to the stories he illustrates on them. His techniques has enabled him to create a series of interesting and original forms on which to paint. He works mostly with characters from fairy tales and children’s stories, primarily for their familiar associations. He tries to incorporate into these cautionary tales a sense of his own history or personal experience in an effort to give them a more contemporary and personal relevance. 

David was born in Central Pennsylvania in 1968 and studied at the Rhode Island School of Design from 1989-93. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1993, he moved to Seattle to work for Dale Chihuly and many highly regarded artists in the Puget Sound area and beyond. He has worked most closely with the maestro Lino Tagliapietra over the past 26 years. David has been traveling teaching and demonstrating nationally and internationally for the past 18 years. David began using glass enamels in his work during a fellowship at the Creative Glass Center of America in 1995 and again in 2004. His work has been included in many distinguished private collections and several museum collections as well.
