"My goal as a glassmaker is to create pieces that share my notions and aesthetics of glass-- its curiosities, its beauty."
Dan Mirer's work is rooted in the design process. Striving to create objects that are contemporary and unique, ideas develop in a dialogue between his inner craftsman and designer.
To realize his work, Mirer uses a blend of traditional, innovative, and esoteric glassmaking techniques. Invention is often a necessity as many pieces require custom tools and processes. While Mirer sees beauty in an efficient production, he takes pride in personally making each piece himself from start to finish
The artist attended the Rochester Institute of Technology, Alfred University, and the Pukeberg School of Design, Sweden.
