Daniel Read

I was trained by Dale Chihuly in the late 70's and 80's. I was his first full time employee and a member of his blow team for 12 years. These days I work mostly alone, employing an assistant only to create pieces with body and lip wraps. 

The Aquatic Series has been so popular, it has taken 30 years to come up with this series that is so satisfying and interesting to make, that I look forward to getting into the studio every day. 

I love getting paid to blow bubbles and dance with glass.
