Thomas Maras

Hudson, Wisconsin

Thomas Maras began blowing glass over 20 years ago as a student at the Minnesota State University Moorhead. His style includes clean forms, line, and color. His “Horizon” series can be described as a lava lamp landscape. Many of his works are created by layering color and using a stippling technique. This allows for the colors to stay vivid and to have movement. He once shared, “Glass has a reflective quality unlike any other medium, and I love the pure translation of color. Creating are is taking risks by defining something original from your perspective and skill. Glass-blowing is both my passion and my lifeline.”
