Mark Todd, Glass Artist

To Mark Todd, sculpting glass is a lot like playing jazz. Improvisation takes center stage as he blows and shapes the molten material into pieces of art—and he always keeps good tunes playing while he works. This passion, which he so obviously displays, was honed over more than a decade spent in Brooklyn and Boston studios, and he now passes it onto others in both Texas and Massachusetts.
