"[I have a] fascination with glass and the making of things." Jack Schmidt, 1987

Jack Schmidt learned to blow glass at Bowling Green State University from the master glassblower Dominick Labino. Schmidt was intrigued by the material and devoted all his time to sculpting with glass, traveling to England to study collections and studio facilities. Sharing a studio with a sculptor prompted him to develop work in plate glass, and his large, geometric sculptures are assembled from layers of stone, metal, and glass.
