“Nothing really grabbed me until I discovered glass. Glass is a lot like clay, but it takes clay a step further . . . like clay you can’t touch.” Growing up surrounded by ceramic artists, Tony Jojola chose a different direction when he apprenticed with virtuoso glass artist Dale Chihuly at Pilchuck Glass School. Jojola’s glass creations make a distinctive contribution to American art.
