Dan Mirer, glass artist, started working in glass at the age of 16 and honed his skills by studying at Rochester Institute of Technology, Alfred University, and the Pukeberg School of Design, Sweden. His work has a signature style that reflects his strengths in craftsmanship and technical innovation. “I incorporate innovative and traditional glassmaking techniques to realize my designs. Many of the pieces require extensive processing,” explains Dan. The resulting work is elegantly shaped vessels that are both functional and decorative.
