Ed Breed“The process of transforming hot molten glass from the furnace to the beautiful and seductive finished form seems like a life long journey condensed into minutes rather than years and just as quickly it brings with it the frustration of failure and the exhilaration of success. I truly love the call to the challenge, the unexplored paths of beauty and the chair in the garden at the end of the day.” Mesmerized by the roar of the glory hole and the challenge of sculpting molten glass, Ed has pursued his passion for glass and light studying with T.C. Roberts on Whidby Island, WA., coursework in kilnformed glass at the Bullseye Glass Factory in Portland, Oregon and specific training in blowing at Red Deer College in Canada.
He was chosen to assist at R. Strong Glass in Berkeley, has studied at San Francisco State University with Elin Christopherson, at Public Glass with Johnathon Schmuck in the Australian roll-up technique as well as coldworking and at BAGI with Treg Silkwood.Ed Breed He also is a participant in the annual Napa Valley Open Studios.
