Danny Polk Jr.

Grateful Gathers Glass

"Much of my love and passion for glass grows from the processes involved in its creation alone. "

To Danny Polk Jr., glass is captivating not only for its fluid beauty, but also for its expressive possibilities: it is uniquely able to describe the relationship between thermal dynamics, gravity, and the curious forces of human creative energies. An inexplicable relationship between artist and medium is achieved every time Polk Jr. composes a new piece of glass.

Utilizing both traditional and modern techniques in hot glass, Polk Jr. creates unique, hand-blown pieces of art.

The artist graduated with a BFA from Salisbury University in 2010. Since graduation, he has worked across the country with several talented artists, learning and growing through each of their teaching styles. He currently resides in Pennsylvania and lives his dream as owner and operator of Grateful Gathers Glass.
