Stephen was first introduced to glass in his first year at Franklin Pierce College, Rindge, NH. The following two years of study served as a platform to understand the basics of glass. As his interest grew, so did his travels: he attended Fort Lewis College in Colorado, and later moved to Seattle to pursue a career in glass.
"All of the hard work required has been buffered by the tremendous amount of support I have received through the glass community. I am grateful to all the talented artists who have given their time and knowledge to help me along the way."
