Michael Dupille

"I enjoy seeing what materials combined with wry curiosity and imagination will manifest. I have been doubly blessed with a fertile imagination and the skill sets to self-actualize my ideas."

Dupille's imagery and concepts are mostly representational with imaginative twists. He targets ideas, concepts, and visuals which promote discussion and further the imagination of the audience.

Kiln-formed art glass is the artist's primary medium. Pieces are created as individual elements using fused crushed glass, fired multiple times in a kiln. The visual effect of the finished work has colorful, dimensional properties not found in other media. Dupille will occasionally employ metal work in conjunction with the glass art.

Primarily self-taught, Dupille worked with Boyce Lundstrom at the Camp Colton Glass Program near Portland, Oregon in the 1980s, developing many of the working methods of the kiln-formed glass movement. His contributions include pioneering the creation of imagery with frit and alternative mold-making techniques. He trained at Central Washington University as a painter, illustrator, and glassblower.
