David Patchen’s Work 

About David Patchen

Blown Glass Artist David Patchen

For two decades David’s creative energies found an outlet in music. But a blowpipe and glass furnace have replaced his guitar. David’s first career was corporate marketing. In 2001, he transitioned his professional career to full-time glass artist.
David studied at the prestigious Pilchuck Glass School. In 2010, David went to Seto City, Japan as Artist in Residence. He spent a month lecturing, demonstrating and making work. The the Seto City Art and Cultural Foundation was his sponsor.
Early in his career, David learned through a wide range of talented local artists. Key to this was experimentation and visits. Time with Afro Celotto, maestro and former assistant to Lino Tagliapietra in Murano, Italy, also shaped his work. David received awards for his work including an artistic merit scholarship for his studies at Pilchuck.  The book David Patchen, Glass is in the permanent collection of the Rakow Library at the Corning Museum of Glass and the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Centro Studi del Vetro (Glass Study Center Library) in Venice, Italy.  Yes, we do have a copy at the gallery.
