Eddie Magliaro was born and raised in New Jersey and earned his BFA at The Museum School of Fine Arts, Boston in 2008. Currently working and residing in Seattle, WA he is a dedicated professional glassblower, teacher and artist. Growing up on the cusp of such a huge metropolis city such as New York, Eddie's work has a wide range of influences ranging from the heat of politics and war to the street art which fills the walls of the city. Since moving to Washington state, his sculpted glass works have become influenced by the surroundings here including fishing/climbing gear, logging trucks, rivers and mountains. Glass is a wildly unique medium to work with which brings upon challenges and rewards like no other material.
