John Pirker


Initially trained as an engineer, John explored the glass arts and eventually graduated from the Crafts and Design Program at Sheridan College in 1999. John states that the "immediacy of working with material and the concrete nature of the resulting work" drew him to glass, and that this medium has "allowed him to continuously explore the diversity of colour, form and technique." Pirker's wide range of simple, elegant and unique forms, "pinched" bowls and plates have been featured in various exhibitions; even former U. S. President Bill Clinton has purchased some of his pieces.
