ABOUT

Dylan Martinez was born in Hudson, Wisconsin in 1985. He discovered his passion for glass during an elective class in college 2007. He finished his degree in Broad Field Science while passionately pursuing glass along the way. In 2010, Dylan studied with master glass blower Sam Stang for two years. During his time there he learned many of the refined Venetian and Swedish techniques he still uses today. Following his time with Sam Stang, he traveled to New Zealand and worked with various glass artists and designers in Auckland. Dylan is now in his second year of study towards his Master of Fine Arts degree at Ball State University. While exploring other media he is still passionately drawn to the glass blowing process. For Dylan, it is all about the connection that is made between the material and the maker. “There is something deeply satisfying about the immediacy of the material. Like playing a piece of music or dancing, you must surrender to the moment and fully commit yourself to the experience. Unlike music and dance, with glass you are left with an artifact that is a result of your performance.”
