Eddie Bernard is an artist, craftsperson, and technician. He earned a
BFA in Glass 1996 from Rochester Institute of Technology, and founded
Wet Dog Glass, LLC in the same year. Wet Dog Glass, LLC is a small
business that designs and manufactures high end glass processing
equipment for artists in private studios, universities, public access
studios and museums across the United States as well as internationally
in such countries as Japan, Turkey, Scotland, Norway, and Australia. As
