“I work in blown glass seeking both beauty and functionality.  I believe that well-executed craft is the antidote to the throw-away culture and that the objects we surround ourselves with should engage our affection and shape our identity.  By making durable and precious objects, we enrich ourselves and ensuing generations.” - Minh Martin

Minh was born in Saigon, Vietnam and spent his early years in the Philippines. He attended Yale University where he majored in Geophysics and where, in his final year, he discovered the art department and took sculpture classes. Upon graduation, he moved to Santa Barbara, CA, where he met The Great Bri'oni and was introduced to the art of glass.  After two years of apprenticeship, Bri'oni kicked him out and he returned east, eventually opening a studio of his own. All pieces are unique and hand blown in Martin's glass studio in Waynesboro, VA.
