A native to New Jersey, Gary Bodker graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2009. Five years later, the artist founded his business, Gary Bodker Designs, out of Portland, Oregon. Gary creates from a foundation of traditional, hand-blown glass techniques, taking much of his inspiration from mid-century and classical art glass periods. The artist prides himself on precision craftsmanship and simplicity, making his pieces fluid and delicate -- perfect for any decor. He continues to design and produce out of his Portland studio.
