About the Instructor(s)
Tim Drier’s interest in glass has been passed to him from his father. Tim has continued his profession in scientific glassblowing for more than 30 years. He was certified in scientific glassblowing from Salem community college in 1984, and joined his father in a business venture (Drier Glass) performing repairs, custom building and modification of scientific glassware. He joined Eastman Kodak company in 1987 and continued his education in larger and more complex scientific glass apparatus. In 1989, wanting to return to Michigan, he joined The Dow Chemical Company, where he works today, mainly with borosilicate glass to design and create complex scientific glassware for research and industrial chemical endeavors. Drier has taught artistic lampworking at Corning Studios at the Corning Museum of Glass in New York.
