About Jake and Hot Glass Alley
Jake Pfeifer takes pride in his handmade art. Jake creates art glass using traditional Italian, Swedish, and contemporary techniques that reflect a personal glass art style of his own expression and design. Each piece receives his dedication to uncompromising quality. Hot Glass Alley is proud of its reputation for excellence and consistency.
Jake Pfeifer says “I fell in love with glass during a family vacation to Bermuda where I spent hours observing and asking questions at an open-air, oceanfront hot shop at the Royal Navy DockYard. I was fascinated with the thick, free flowing gather of hot glass, the blowing, molding, and the adding of color. I could see the technical challenges, but also the range of possibilities in using glass as an art medium. I was 14. During my four years of high school, I began learning to blow glass and create glass art pieces; I have never looked back. It is my passion.”
"I am a 2010 graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology, Bachelor’s of Fine Arts, School of American Crafts – Glass Program, and have completed a 2 year Artist in Residence at Flame Run in Louisville. My training includes having worked in studios at Penland (NC), Urban Glass (NY), Glassworks (KY), Flame Run (KY), Corning (NY), Goggle Works (PA), and in New Jersey, at Belle Meade Hot Glass and Vandermark Merritt Studio."
"People ask me what inspires me. I am a curious person which often leads to my artistic inspiration. I love rainy days, Christmas, art museums, rollerblading, golf, walking in the woods, waterfalls, the ocean, music, fishing, family, friends, and movies that take me to places I’ve never been. The formula for my work is personal; I am focused; each piece receives my enthusiasm and perseverance for excellence. My vision for each piece encompasses an understanding of the properties and movement of glass and application of color."
