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 are his focus, while experience and skill guide his form. In 2012 he began to incorporate found materials and wood constructions to introduce a new context for glass in sculpture. De Wit took us outside of our glass comfort zone and reminded us, it is the master not the medium that creates art.

“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. John de Wit was a featured artist and lecturer at the 2015 SOFA Chicago Exposition.
