Jon Wolfe has been working with glass since the early 1980s. He received both his bachelor's and master of fine arts from the University of Illinois and studied at the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State. He is currently director of the Hot Glass Studio at Kokomo Opalescent Glass in Indiana, the oldest producer of art glass in the country. Wolfe creates both functional and sculptural pieces, stating that his work "draws on the dialogue of basic design elements that provide a canvas for active surface treatment."
