california artist caleb siemon first discoveredÂ an intense interest in glass blowing atÂ a summer art camp when he was a boy. he decided to pursue his passion and enrolled at the prestigious rhode island school of design. there, he was provided numerous opportunities to study glass blowing around the world — from new zealand to scotland to japan.
after graduating with a bfa, caleb went to veniceÂ and apprenticed forÂ master glass sculptor pino signoretto. it was there that he learned the traditional italian ways to craft glass, and developed a strong appreciation forÂ the methodology. he returned to california after several years abroad and opened his own studio, where he frequently invites old world artisans to visit and share their techniques with future artists.
certainly,Â this combination of contemporary design and centuries old methods is what compels people all over the world to become fans andÂ collectors.
