Chad Parker

Pittsburgh Glass Center continues to support artists by recognizing a new artist each month. In December we welcome Chad Parker.

Chad Parker started flame working as a hobby in 2010. Jumping around making different things he wasn't quite sure what he wanted to do with glass until he made his first marble. He has been making his "monsterZ" style marble for five years now with a large group of collectors spread out over the US and Canada. He loves teaching at the Pittsburgh Glass Center and Touchstone Center for Crafts but most enjoys getting together with other glass blowers and collaborating on projects outside his normal body of work especially when it involves getting into the hot shop or working in other mediums.

Sign up for Chad's 4-week class at PGC called "Borosilicate Marblez" this spring!

His work will be on display at PGC throughout the month of December.
