Brent Rogers Brent Rogers

While decorating the White House for the holiday season in 2013, First Lady Michelle Obama pulled talent from her native Chicago. When the arrangements were finally put together, the Christmas trees in the East Room sparkled brilliantly thanks in part to the 120 ornaments made by glassblower Brent Rogers. Although his ornaments were a hit in D.C., he’s better known in Chicago for his commissioned art pieces and hands-on workshops. Brent started blowing glass at the age of 15, and expanded his skill set by working in Seattle glass factories, serving an internship with Benjamin Moore, and earning degrees from the Pilchuck Glass School and Pratt Fine Art Center.
