As a glassblower, Lance Friedman's résumé speaks for itself. He has works permanently installed in the Corning Museum of Glass and the Tacoma Museum of Glass. In the late 1980s, he helped the city of Chicago establish its official zoning and safety codes for glass-blowing studios in the city. Today, he teaches one-on-one lessons in glass blowing and solid sculpture at Shatter Glass Group, his Old Irving Park studio.

He brings decades of experience to each lesson, along with plenty of personalization toward each student's skill level and personal artistic aspirations. "We only do private lessons, so the learning curve is much less steep and you get more attention from your instructor," he said. He reports the results with pride—many of his students have been with him for more than a decade and have become established artists in their own right, creating stunning original artwork.
