Grant Donaldson ~ Studio Glass

"I love the physical and mental challenge of working with molten glass, and the thrill of creating works that show who I am and where I've been."

Born in Australia in 1959, Grant started out working on the land. He earned an understanding and respect for the cycles of life and the rhythm of the seasons, fascinated by how plants and animals fit into the environment by evolving and surviving.

While farming, Grant met Eileen Gordon and saw glassblowing for the first time. In his words, “I Fell Into a Burning Ring of Fire”.

In 1994, Grant moved from farming to full-time glassblowing. With Eileen’s patient training, he slowly learned the complex skills.

Grant then joined the loving Gordon family of glass artists and developed the skills to be able to express his ideas.
