North Rim Glass Studio Fission Vessel
Jared Davis was born in New York City and raised in Aspen, Colorado. In 1995, Davis was introduced to Swedish glass masters, Jan-Erik Ritzman and Sven Ake Carlsson, who invited Davis to study with them in Transjo, Sweden for two years. Prior to his trip to Sweden, in the winter of 1996, Davis studied Italian style glass blowing and glass sculpting at The Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, Washington.
The apprenticeship ended in July 1998. Davis then returned to Crawford, Colorado with his family to become an active glass blower and designer for K Dahl Glass Studios. In 2001 Jared started his own business, Davis Glass. He currently sends his work to galleries all over the world and focuses solely on his designs.
During his apprenticeship, Davis controlled the glass in its most difficult form. Jared is inspired by the vast beauty of western Colorado. Most of his works contain many earthen tones. By using his Fission technique (layering numerous colors and using a special crackle process,) he has created a recognizable design, which results in unique one of a kind works of art.
