Started working in glass in the 1990’s.
“Some of the finest glass masters in the world such as Lino Tagliapietra and Jens Eltorp have shared their knowledge with me. My goal is to share that appreciation of the art of glass blowing with the world through teaching and the creation of the unique and beautifully hand crafted works.”
Erik Eiserling was introduced to glass blowing while attending Santa Monica College in Southern California. He studied with the Swedish glass masters at the Orrefors Glass Factory, and after two years of perfecting his technical skills there, he attended California College of the Arts (CCA). Erik was there introduced to the Italian styles of glass blowing, and he worked with Italian glass master Lino Tagliapietra at the Pilchuck Glass School and again at Pratt Fine Arts Center. After teaching glass blowing at CCA for three years, Erik has gone on to work with other glass artists and to exhibit his work internationally.
