ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ethan Davis is a teenage artist who lives in Colorado. He began to blow glass in late 2017. Since 2017 he has worked in 3 different studios and has worked with 3 different teachers. Ethan became interested in glass blowing after multiple trips to a Chihuly exhibit in the Denver Botanic Gardens in 2014. He started with simple projects with not a lot of personality as they were mainly just general shapes, like spheres, cylinders, and ovals. A major recent source of inspiration was going to a studio in England where they had many naturalistic sculptures. Since then his pieces have taken on a more realistic look and shape as well as more identity. He also is inspired by finding ways to reuse broken glass by crushing them into color to use in his own pieces. Ethan’s specialty is small sculptural pieces that resemble plants, fungi, and animals.
