About The Artist:

Richard Marquis is a American Glass artist who has been instrumental in bringing the high-level of Venetian glass blowing techniques to the United States, and Marquis has had an extraordinary influence on the development of contemporary studio glass in America and around the world. While studying at the University of California at Berkeley during the 1960s, he explored ceramics and was introduced to glassblowing. Unsatisfied by the limited techniques practiced in American studio glass at that time, Marquis, on the suggestion of friend a former Fulbright scholar Dale Chihuly, Marquis applied and received a Fulbright grant to study glassblowing on the island of Murano, near Venice, to observe and work with the masters of a glassblowing tradition. After learning and training in Italy, Marquis has demonstrated and taught throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. The effect of Venetian glassblowing techniques on American studio glass enabled glass artists to expand their technical vocabularies and, combined with new and experimental approaches, led to the redefinition of glass as an artistic medium.
