Course Description

We are proud to welcome Brandon Cupp as the first destination workshop in our new studio and the first in 2023. Brandon and Ron have been friends since Ron took his first classes in Seattle Washington at Seattle Glass Blowing Studio in 2003. Brandon has been a mentor and for inspiration for Ron and they were teammates at Pilchuck Glass School in 2009 during Scott Darlingtons sculpting class “Secrets Revealed”. Brandons mastery and innovation are world class and his technical abilities are somewhat beyond comparison. Moreover, although intense at times, B-Cupp (as we call him) is a fun and friendly guy to hang out with. He has a wicked sense of humor and a light hearted spirit. If you are lucky enough to take this course you will not be disappointed. WHO IS BRANDON CUPP? Brandon was 13 when “the Masters of Venice” documentary was on tv. As he watched these men manipulate and shape this fascinating glass material, he immediately knew that was what he wanted to pursue in his career. He dreamed of creating beautiful glass works like the maestro’s I saw in that documentary. At age 15, he took his first series of lessons at Seattle Glassblowing Studio and immediately fell in love with molten glass. As his passion grew stronger and he became more skilled, it became hard for him to concentrate on anything else so he set out to become a professional glassblower and create his own education as an artist. He started working for one of the great glass artists of our time, Benjamin Moore, in Seattle. That entry level shop position opened up many other opportunities in the glass community and provided him with work at multiple glass shops, assisting artists, and teaching classes. Brandon also made the pilgrimage to Murano, Italy; the glass capital of the world, where he received private demonstrations and lectures from world famous maestro's of glass: including, Giancarlo Signoretto, the master he had seen on tv as a child. He worked as the Lead Gaffer at Seattle Glassblowing Studio for many years where he was in charge of a team of artists that hand crafted a variety of production items for their gallery. Currently, he is a Lead Gaffer and Designer for Jack Pine Studio located in Hocking Hills, Ohio where he specialise in the production of a variety of items, including unique blown glass pumpkins. ​ In his spare time, Brandon enjoys experimenting with new glass forms & techniques; creating and selling his own works of glass art.
