Jeff studied at Sheridan College of Art and Design in Ontario and Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State. He has also participated in numerous advanced glass workshops, where he has worked with some of the top hot glass artists in the world. In 1992, he was invited to France by CIRVA, where he first met and worked with Lino Tagliapietra.
Through his intense study of glass, Jeff has mastered some of the most difficult aspects of glassblowing and sculpture. Jeff has become one of the leading goblet makers in Canada, and has won numerous awards for his outstanding talents.
After years of hard work, study and travel, Jeff opened his studio, Joe Blow Glassworks in June 2000. The 2700 square foot glass blowing facility is located in the eastside warehouse district of Vancouver, BC; a thriving artist community. Through his contribution to the glass community, Jeff hopes to raise the awareness of glass as a medium and strengthen public appreciation for the fine craft.
