This class will explore techniques for sculpting hollow and solid forms in borosilicate glass. Experience is preferred but not required.


CHAZ PYLE moved to Oregon to attend Oregon State University in 1994. It was on the Oregon coast that he initially witnessed glassblowing and knew he had found his medium. After apprenticing with glass sculpture Scott Bison, Chaz struck out on his own in 2000 to create glass art full time.

Chaz spent the next few years honing his skills. His work has been featured in publications such as Cannabis Culture (January 2007), Glass Aficionado (April 2008), and the book entitled, Smoked Volume 1 (2008). Chaz has competed in many glass flameoffs including the International Hot Glass Invitational (Las Vegas, 2009) and the Degenerate Flameoff (Eugene, 2011). Later Chaz went on to serve as a judge for the Eugene Glass School flameoff (2011).

Today Chaz Pyle continues to create glass art daily, maintaining a thriving studio in Southern Oregon. He looks forward to a life in Art surrounded by family and friends.
