Jeff Burnette - Owner: Joe Blow Glassworks

Jeff Burnette has been working in hot glass since 1979. In this time, Jeff has developed his own unique line of work, including a stunning line of stemware, larger works like the Incalmo Vessel series, and the funky and unique "Raygunz."

Jeff studied at Sheridan College of Art and Design in Ontario and Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State. He has also participated in numerous advanced glass workshops, where he has worked with some of the top hot glass artists in the world. In 1992 he was invited to France by CIRVA, where he first met and worked with Lino Tagliapietra. Through his intense study of glass, Jeff has mastered some of the most difficult aspects of glass blowing and sculpture. Jeff has become one of the leading goblet makers in Canada, and has won numerous awards for his outstanding talents.

After years of hard work, study and travel, Jeff is proud to announce the opening of his own studio, Joe Blow Glassworks. The 2700 square foot glass blowing facility is located in the eastside warehouse district of Vancouver, British Columbia, a thriving artist community. Through his contribution to the glass community, Jeff hopes to raise the awareness of glass as a medium, and to strengthen the publics appreciation for fine craft
