John de Wit

Seattle glass artist John de Wit has fused his love of ceramics with glass for the past 30 years. Texture and color became his focus, while his experience and skill guide his form. In his May 2012 exhibition, 'Introspectus', he incorporated glass, while moving beyond it with found materials and wooden constructions. De Wit took us outside of our glass comfort zone and reminded us, it is the master not the medium that creates art.

“This latest group of work is based on the varied interests and processes I have been working on for the last few years. I seek relationships between objects, the tactile and the unrequited symbol. While Nature inspires me, I chose not to mimic, choosing instead to construct, jumble and tumult.”

De Wit studied glass and ceramics at California State University in Chico in the late 1970s, and also attended Pilchuck Glass School.  After working as a glassblowing assistant for Dale Chihuly, de Wit went on to teach at Pilchuck Glass School, Pratt Fine Art Center, and several workshops and lectures in France.
