Mark Ditzler glass artworks have a beautiful shine and iridescence.

Mark works in Seattle, USA.  His pieces feature special “surface design elements”. These may be twisted canes or detailed murrini made in the hot shop, or small twists and threads of coloured glass from the flameworking torch.

Screen-printed enamels and powders, iridescent and dichroic glass, or gold and silver foils are all used as accents. These techniques are carefully “fused” to produce glass art of heirloom quality.

Using a wide range of kiln-forming techniques, Mark Ditzler Glass Studio produces glass wall panels and sculpture, sinks, and lighting. Mark has completed many private, corporate and public projects. Working with designers, architects and homeowners, he loves the process of taking an idea from concept to completion.

Mark has degrees in Fine Art and Industrial Design. Originally a clay artist, he studied glassblowing and neon before discovering kiln-formed glass almost 30 years ago. He has been a visiting instructor at many studios. These include Penland School of Craft, the Corning Museum of Glass and the Tacoma Museum of Glass etc.

Artist Statement

“As a designer-craftsman, it is often the fine details and small surprises I enjoy.  I’m inspired by the endless possibilities of working in glass, the most magical of materials! In my studio I try to bring together techniques from different crafts, learned over the years, to create a unique signature in my work.”
