Josh Simpson

Josh Simpson first experimented with glass when he was a student at Hamilton College in 1970. Over the last 50 years, his art has evolved as he has found inspiration in NASA images of Earth and other natural phenomena. In 2005, the Corning Museum of Glass commissioned Josh to create what became the world's largest glass paperweight. He has devoted himself to mastering all aspects of glassmaking, and his greatest satisfaction is derived from his planets. Josh works in his studio in Shelburne Falls, MA.
