Do what you love and love what you do

Connecticut, Colorado and Maine were home before I settled in Rhode Island in 1998.  I worked in jobs as diverse as bartending and Adventure Program Facilitating, and had hobbies that included extreme skiing and rock climbing.
I was introduced to Glassblowing in 1993, while earning my BA in Art History from Hartwick College in Oneonta, NY.  I knew I wanted to pursue glass, but allowed myself to get temporarily sidetracked by the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.

Four years later, I returned to the East Coast, and completed a 2 month long intensive Glassblowing class at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina.   It was just what I needed, and it challenged my skills as an artist and designer.  I was in love.

It has been over 17 years since I started Tanner Glass, and I still love the challenge of creating and designing work that is fun to make and practical to own.  I call them FUNctional Objects. 

And as expected, I rarely miss an opportunity to ski.
