Tyler Kimball

"Glass is fun, light, and bright. I try to reflect that in the work I make with the material. There's no reason to try to hide the natural beauty that exists within glass."

Tyler Kimball uses light, shape, and design to enhance the natural beauty held within the material of glass. His work is playful and bright as well as meaningful and captivating. His aim is to make the viewer feel the same care for each piece that he put into making it.

Kimball uses traditional glassblowing techniques and contemporary designs to create his unique pieces.

Kimball spent ten years working for various studios and artists in Seattle. He has participated in dozens of artist residencies and visiting artist stints internationally. He has also attended and taught at multiple educational facilities and colleges in the USA.
