For twenty three years blown glass has been Corey's artistic outlet. His surroundings and the natural world have provided him endless inspiration for his work, but the physical challenges the medium of glass present holds a large interest for Corey. Being completely spent after creating large pieces makes him feel like he has given everything he has to the artistic process of blowing glass.
Recently Corey has been focusing on glass color in his work. He has created new color patterns, color reactions and endless color combinations. These uses of color add a beautiful element to his work, letting him recreate details from nature in his pieces.
Corey picked up his first blow pipe in 1989 at a Seattle glass factory. He quickly became lead glass blower and designer. During this time Corey also worked on special glass projects with leading artists in the Seattle area. In 2006 he studied at Pilchuck School of Glass, where he further diversified his knowledge of glass. Since 2003 Corey has owned and operated a studio in Redmond, Washington.
