Born in 1949 in Sacramento, CA, Jay Musler has been recognized as an innovative force in the glass arts for over four decades, having been awarded fellowships by the National Endowment for the Arts and California Arts Council. He studied in Oakland at the California College of Arts and Crafts (now CCA) in the late 1960s and worked as a glassblower for nearly a decade. He has developed his own distinctive approach through lampworking, cutting, assembling and painting his works. In 2012, Jay was invited to be the featured artist at the World Lampworking Conference in Salem, New Jersey. Jay will be demonstrating his lampworking techniques at the Crucible in this demonstration.
