BIOGRAPHY: Ben Tullman
Ben is one of the founders of Ignite Glass and is the Creative Director and Studio Manager. He first encountered glass at age 12 making beads.Over the past 17 years Ben has honed is skillset, studying with master glass blowers such as Davide Salvadore, Karen-Willenbrink-Johnson and Matrin Janecky.
The focus of his artwork is using traditional techniques as a foundation to push the limits of scale, form, color and light through experimentation.
In his words, “I love the inherent unpredictability and mystery of glass. You have to be adaptive and flexible to work with it because it has a life of its own. Every time you work with glass it challenges you and gives you new opportunities to learn and grow.”
