Luce Artist Biography

John Leighton studied environmental design at California State University, then decided to try his hand at creating sculptures from glass. At first, glassblowing "did not come naturally" to him, but he kept at it and, since 1978, has taught glasswork at San Francisco State University. Leighton enjoys the teamwork that comes with glassblowing, and has worked with groups of artists from countries as diverse as the Czech Republic and Japan.
