Jason Christian was born with a natural desire to create, capturing inspiration from his mother, a mix media artist. In 1997, Jason began working with glass which encouraged him to begin his own journey as a creative artisan. Over the past 13 years, Jason has established his professional career with several notable artists from the Seattle area. During this time, Jason's study of form ignited his interest in classical Venetian techniques and he began creating his collection of functional works of art. Jason draws his inspiration from his natural surroundings, pulling from the craft, design, and historical elements of glass making.
"I love the natural qualities of glass, its transparency, delicacy, and its malleability I try to embody these qualities while designing and making my work."
On exhibition Subdued Elegance "My intent with this work was to capture the essence of Peter Faberge's creations. I have long admired his work and felt that our aesthetic tastes were similar. I was attracted by the challenge of interpreting work done in metal and precious stones to the medium of hot glass, and the high level of technical skill needed to produce work that matched the original level of craftsmanship."
