David Lindsay

Lindsay Art Glass

"Fire, combined with natural elements, allows me to orchestrate the extraordinary art of glassblowing. My fascination with color, texture, and form has kept me on a lifelong quest for excellence in design and craftsmanship."

Drawn by the excitement of molten glass and the teamwork required to shape it, Lindsay has been blowing glass for more than thirty-eight years. His unique designs have an artistry that leaves the realm of realism and explores the abstract. He draws inspiration from the molten glass itself, as well as the sea, the changing seasons, and other artists of all media.

Each of David Lindsay's pieces is individually blown and shaped by hand using techniques passed down over centuries. Employing the technique of compound layering, he often incorporates gold and silver into his pieces.

Born and raised in Vallejo, California, David Lindsay became an apprentice at Nourot Glass Studio in 1976, just months after graduating high school. Over the next six years, Lindsay advanced from apprentice to assistant glassblower to gaffer, becoming proficient in all aspects of the glass production process. In 1982, David became a partner of Nourot Glass Studio, where he worked until he and his wife, Ann Lindsay, founded their own studio, Lindsay Art Glass, in 1998. He has also attended the world-famous Pilchuck Glass School and the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.
