Tim de Jong & the Glassworks Team

 

Tim de Jong blowing glass

Tim was born in Canada. He studied glass at Alfred University in New York. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in glass art from Tyler's School of Art at Temple University located in Pennsylvania. In 1991, Tim came to Texas on vacation and fell in love with the Texas Hill Country, then decided to set up shop.

 “Glass is a sensual, sexy, seductive material. Everyone wants to touch it, and everyone is afraid to touch it. “When you make a glass piece, you can't just go in and make a glass piece. I haven't made a piece without putting one hundred percent of my heart into it. You just can't work the material without pouring your soul into it.” 

Here's Tim's story and the makings of the Glassworks
